Fund purpose

The Fund is designed to deliver positive absolute returns through the economic cycle with low volatility and low correlation of returns with equity markets.

Fund benchmark

The Fund is not managed in relation to a benchmark. However, we report performance against: S&P/NZX Bank Bills 90-Day Index plus 2%.

To calculate the risk indicator we use: 15% S&P/NZX 50 Index; 15% S&P/ASX 200 Index & 70% S&P/NZX Bank Bills 90-Day Index.

Investment approach

The Fund principally holds 'long' and 'short' positions in listed Australasian equities reflecting our conviction in their likelihood of providing medium to long term capital growth. We can actively allocate investments between Australasian listed equities, fixed interest and cash. The Fund may also use derivatives to hedge currency and equity risk.

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.
