How the Fund works
The Ethical Leaders Hedged Global Fixed Interest Fund gives you access to a multi-manager approach to investing in global bond markets. It invests in a diversified range of international government securities, government-related securities, corporate securities, asset-backed securities and hybrid securities in both developed and emerging markets around the globe, managed within a sustainable and responsible framework.
Our ethical fund invests your money in companies that are making a positive contribution in areas such as human rights, animal welfare, gender diversity,
environment, climate change and governance.
Our ethical fund actively avoids investing your money in industries that negatively impact our world such as fossil fuels, tobacco, nuclear power, armaments, gambling, alcohol and pornography
The fund provides specialist coverage of the three major components of global bond markets – government bonds, corporate credit and securitised debt.
The fund provides diversification within the fixed income asset class through exposure to a range of sectors and securities around the world. It aims to deliver more stable returns by also diversifying across investment styles.
You benefit from exposure to a range of high quality fixed interest investment managers, selected by AMP Capital’s specialist multi-manager team. With a responsible investment focus you also benefit from AMP Capital’s expertise in environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
To help protect against currency exchange rate fluctuations, the fund is fully hedged to the New Zealand dollar.
