The Trans-Tasman Fund invests in a high conviction portfolio of 25-35 well researched shares which are primarily New Zealand and Australian listed companies. The Fund is actively managed, which means the holdings may differ considerably from its composite 50:50 NZX50 and ASX200 index. While the Fund tends to be fully invested, when there are few compelling investment opportunities, the Fund may hold up to 50% 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.

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.
