Working with Fund Managers

Whilst not exclusive, we typically aim to work with fund managers who:

  • Are experts (market leaders) in their area of investment

  • Have an established track record of adding value to investor portfolios

  • Have received positive ratings from independent research rating companies

  • Take an active approach to investing

  • Offer investment solutions (product) to retail New Zealand investors

  • Are co-investors in their investment strategies; and/or have partial or full ownership of the funds management business

  • Take into account responsible investment issues

  • Charge management fees that are (in The Investment Store's opinion) reasonable and suitably reflect the nature and complexity of the investment strategy.
