This Fund is designed as a risk-diversifier for those who may already hold riskier assets (such as equities or property). It aims to utilise Harbour’s research to generate returns over and above the New Zealand fixed interest market.

Investment Approach

This Fund is built to generate returns through investing in a mix of New Zealand government and corporate fixed interest securities. The Fund is actively managed, which means the Fixed Income team is able to use Harbour’s macroeconomic and security research to make active investment decisions and target additional returns or hedge against risks.
