Fund purpose

The Fund is designed to provide capital growth over time and produce attractive levels of income too. The objective of the Fund is to generate higher yield than the New Zealand and Australian markets.

Fund benchmark

The Fund is not managed in relation to a benchmark. However, we report performance against: 60% S&P/ASX Industrials Index (equally weighted and 90% hedged to NZD) and 40% S&P/NZX 50 Portfolio Index.

Investment approach

The stock picking process for this Fund blends a strong quantitative selection process across Australasia with a quality and fundamental overlay. The Fund predominantly invests in equities which generate attractive dividend yields, but also holds cash and fixed interest securities. It is designed to be more diversified than typical Australasian equity funds, and provide scope for regular sustainable income.

Responsible investing

We employ a strategy of integration and company engagement, meaning our team researches the companies we invest in and actively checks for any environmental, social or governance (ESG) risks that may apply. It helps our Portfolio Manager develop an understanding of each company, and influences the allocation of capital. This fund also includes negative screening to remove companies whose business activities may lead to significant harm. Zero-tolerance exclusions include the production of tobacco, nuclear explosives, cluster munitions, anti-personnel mines, pornography and controversial firearms.

Additional information on screening thresholds and processes are outlined in the exclusions section of our ESG Policy.
