Balancing risks and returns has always been one of the main priorities for us at the Pie KiwiSaver Scheme. Especially when inflation rates are higher and markets are less predictable. However, with the long term approach and knowledge of investment fundamentals, there are still plenty of strong investment opportunities to be found.
We use five key principles to guide our investment choices.
With Principle One we love to see skin in the game, which means we invest like it’s our own money - because over $100m of the money we manage across our investment funds and KiwiSaver comes from our staff, directors, and shareholders (as at 31.01.24).
Principle Two is we look for long-term viability and growth potential.
When we’re considering companies to invest in, we look at the fundamentals. We want to make sure a company's business model is future-proofed and well-suited for the changing market and technological landscape, so it can continue to thrive over time. Investing responsibly is important to us, and we have a policy (available here)
which relates to the consideration of environmental, social, and governance ("ESG") factors in our investment process.
We have refined these five key principles over the past 16 years since Pie Funds launched in 2007.
As active management specialists, we stick to these principles when markets are up and when they’re down too. Our funds typically have a range of hand picked investments which our global investment specialists back as our best picks. We manage our Pie KiwiSaver Scheme funds in accordance with a robust risk framework to act in the best interests of our investors.
