  • 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

  • Incorporate ESG factors and other responsible investment practices into their investment process

  • 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

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