Factsheet

Overview

Fund objective

The Fund aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) that includes a portfolio of large global stocks identified as ‘Climate Leaders’ that have also passed screens to exclude companies with direct or significant exposure to fossil fuels or engaged in activities deemed inconsistent with responsible investment considerations, with the currency exposure hedged back to the NZ dollar.

  • Diversified global exposure

    The Fund holds a diversified portfolio of large, sustainable, ethical companies from a range of global locations.

  • Currency-hedged

    The Fund is currency-hedged to the NZ dollar, which seeks to minimise the effect of currency fluctuations on returns.
