Investment Approach

This Fund holds liquid money market securities, NZ Government stock, corporate bonds and term deposits. It aims to generate returns in two ways: using Harbour's research-driven process to capture the higher yield that longer term securities can offer, then actively managing liquidity and interest rate exposure so funds are available when investors need them.

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.
