The Alpha Fund invests in a concentrated portfolio of 10 to 15 well researched shares predominantly in New Zealand and Australian listed companies. The Fund does not track an equity index. As a consequence of these factors performance may be volatile. When there are few compelling investment opportunities, the Fund may  hold cash or cash equivalent securities.

Investment Objective

The Fund aims to generate capital growth over the long term by actively managing your New Zealand and Australian equity investments.

Investment Approach

Investments in companies will tend to be in ones that operate in areas of the economy where we believe there is strong growth and the company has a sustainable competitive advantage over its competition. In addition, we will also seek out short-term investment opportunities.

Investment Limits

0 – 100% New Zealand shares

0 – 100% Australian shares

0 – 100% Cash

The Fund can invest outside of Australasia and it also has the ability to short-sell.

Suitability

Suitable for New Zealand investors who want an actively managed, concentrated, exposure to the New Zealand and Australian stock markets. Given the nature of this investment, we recommend a minimum investment period of at least five years.
