Implemented Investment Solutions (IIS) was established in 2011, and today operates in the investment market and industry across multiple business lines managing over $4 billion in assets.
IIS’s Fund Hosting business proudly provides services to some of the largest fund managers in the world who wish to operate in New Zealand, as well as some of New Zealand’s most respected investment companies.
Fund Hosting is similar to the third-party responsible entity services offered within the Australian market. This enables investment managers to offer their investment expertise and solutions to Kiwi clients as Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE) funds by “outsourcing” the issuing and managing of these funds to IIS. IIS is licenced as a “manager of a registered scheme” under New Zealand’s Financial Market Conduct Act 2013 (FMC Act).
The clients we manage PIE funds for include global investment managers like Russell Investments, Franklin Templeton, Antipodes, APN and First Sentier Investors, as well as local adviser businesses, specialist investment groups and family offices who use tailored PIE funds as part of their investment offering. We also manage the InvestNow KiwiSaver Scheme.
Our expertise is working with global investment managers, and local boutiques, to provide Kiwi investors access to these managers’ solutions in funds that are Portfolio Investment Entities (PIE funds).
