Our goal is to be the most trusted Fund Manager in NZ.

We aim to earn that trust through these core principles:

Harbour’s success relies on the work and dedication of our team of experienced and proven professionals. With over 200 years of collective industry experience, through different market cycles, you can rest assured your investments are in qualified hands.

Investment Philosophy

Harbour’s approach to investing is simple: all of our investment decisions must be backed by research.

Governance & Controls

We operate within a framework of strong governance that is overseen by an experienced Board. We pride ourselves on our best practice operating systems and procedures when onboarding, investing, managing and reporting back to clients.

Responsible Investing

Sustainability is an integral part of both our investment process and our team values. Harbour is a market leader for integrating ESG research into our investment process, and we have been signatories to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment since August 2010. 

Harbour is proud to sponsor Roots of Empathy in New Zealand schools. 

Roots of Empathy is an international, evidence-based classroom programme which reduces levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. 

At the heart of the programme are a baby and parent who visit the class throughout the school year. A Roots of Empathy Instructor coaches children to observe the baby’s development and feelings. In this experiential learning, the baby is the “Teacher” and a lever, which the Instructor uses to help children identify and reflect on their own feelings and the feelings of others.
