Investment Policy and Objectives Provides exposure to a range of asset types and invests in passively and actively managed underlying funds selected by Hunter.
Any international equity exposure will be unhedged.  It’s objective is to perform broadly in line with the return of its investment benchmark before fees and tax over the long-term.
Investment Strategy The Fund invests in international equities, Australasian equities, international fixed interest, NZ fixed interest, and cash and cash equivalents.  Investment can be either directly in securities (including derivatives) or via a suitable fund.

Hunter’s investment philosophy is based on the following beliefs:

  • both active and passive investment strategies can play valuable roles within portfolio construction;
  • strategic asset allocation is an important component in determining long-term investment returns and the trade-off between risk and return;
  • diversification across a range of geographic regions, asset classes and securities is an important risk mitigation factor;
  • regular rebalancing is beneficial to ensure appropriate risk tolerances are maintained so long as this is undertaken in a cost effective way;
  • fees reduce returns to investors and are an important consideration; and
  • taxation can also be a drag on returns and structuring of investment matters.
Benchmark The investment benchmark for the Fund is the weighted average return (before tax, fees and other expenses) of the benchmark indices into which the Fund invests.
Minimum Investment Timeframe 5+ Years
