Fund objective and strategy

The fund aims to achieve positive long-term returns by investing in selected New Zealand and international fixed interest assets, subject to the risks associated with investments in fixed interest markets. 

We may invest directly into these assets, or into other managed investment schemes that do so. Typically, the fund is close to fully invested in New Zealand fixed interest assets.

These kinds of investments will typically have low levels of movement up and down in value. They can be suitable for someone who wants to achieve slightly higher returns than those expected from investing solely in cash, but with the possibility of some variation in returns.

Risk indicator


The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high).  The rating reflects how much the value of the relevant fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility).  A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and down along the way.  See section 4 of the PDS ‘What are the risks of investing?’ for more information.
