Fund Overview

Invest in the 20 largest listed companies in New Zealand that are collectively worth over $100 billion. Large and liquid, these companies account for much of the daily trading on the NZX. Holdings include four electricity companies, four transport companies, three real estate companies, two telecom companies and our largest NZ company, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. While many of the companies are stable, this fund is likely to fluctuate with the world view of New Zealand, including our exchange rate, interest rate and export appeal.  About 52% of the companies, by size, are dependent on export and tourism appeal.

Risk and Returns

The risk indicator reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. The lowest risk rating doesn’t mean “risk-free” and this risk indicator is not a guarantee of a Fund’s future performance. For more information, read our monthly fact sheet or most recent Fund Update.
