AMP Capital NZ Shares Fund

How the Fund works

The New Zealand Shares Fund is a diversified portfolio of predominantly New Zealand shares constructed with the aim of outperforming the S&P/NZX 50 Index. The fund will generally be overexposed to companies which have sustainable competitive advantage, good growth outlooks, the ability to grow earnings faster than revenue and which can grow without a strong reliance on raising additional capital.

The fund may also invest in Australian shares. This flexibility affords a wider investment universe and allows the portfolio to benefit from insights the research team derives on Australian stocks.

Salt Funds Management Limited is the investment manager of the Fund.
