About the Fund

The Fisher Funds New Zealand Growth Fund is our flagship fund and was launched in August 1998. The fund aims to produce attractive long term returns by investing in quality companies chosen by our Investment Team. Typically the fund will be invested in 15 to 20 companies in at any one time. Often a company in the fund will have been chosen because it offers a unique product or service, has a dominant market position or brand, or operates in a fast growing sector.

Why New Zealand shares

  • Easy access to key people and information — Investing in our own backyard allows us to know our companies well, understand the economic and political environment in which they operate, and structure our portfolios to capitalise on the best growth opportunities available in NZ. 
  • Familiarity — One of the things that appeals to our clients about investing in New Zealand is familiarity. Many of the companies in the Fund are household names and chances are you have used their product/services at some point.

Highlights and lowlights —  September 2021

Your portfolios: Highlights and lowlights

The New Zealand Growth Fund was up 0.9% for the month. Infratil (+6%) announced the launch of Gurin Energy, its fourth renewable energy platform and first in Asia, based on a team of people with a track record of success in South East Asia. This again demonstrates Infratil’s ability to grow and create value beyond the assets in its existing portfolio.

Small business software provider Xero (-8%) saw a fall in its share price late in the month as an uptick in interest rates prompted a sell-off in growth companies. There has been no change to the fundamental picture.
