The Fund

The Cash Plus Fund provides investors with a conservative cash investment with the benefit of an equity ‘kicker’. Up to 20% is invested in our funds, giving us the ability to outperform bank rates. There is a 10-day withdrawal period for this fund. Recommended investment time frame: 2 years.

The Cash Plus Fund’s strategy is to invest predominantly (approximately 80%) with New Zealand registered banks (the intention being with at least two such banks) in cash held on call or term deposit for a duration of no more than 12 months.

In addition, the Cash Plus Fund may also invest (approximately 20%) in equities either directly or through the Other Pie Funds Products. We may also invest in bonds and other types of financial products (at our discretion).

Further information in relation to how the investment strategy is implemented is set out above in the ‘Investment Strategy and SIPO Review’ section of this SIPO.
