Fund Overview

The Small & Mid Cap Opportunities Fund invests in companies outside of the NZ 20, who have a market capitalisation of between $100 million and $1 billion. This fund gives investors access to smaller and growing NZ companies across a diverse mix of sectors including real estate, technology, healthcare, tourism, consumer staples. It includes a range of iconic household names such as Briscoes, Hallenstein Glasson and NZX. This fund tracks the S&P/NZX Emerging Opportunities Index, which combined with the NZ 20 fund, represents the entire investible universe on the NZX. The Fund is likely to fluctuate in line with the general business cycle. Its high allocation to the real estate sector also provides a solid income stream.

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.
