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 — January 2021

Your portfolios: Highlights and lowlights

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare (+5%) announced that sales growth accelerated further in the December quarter as COVID infections surged in many regions globally. Hospitals have reacted by preparing to treat more COVID patients, with F&P's Airvo and Optiflow nasal high flow therapy products increasingly being used as the first line of treatment for patients.

Vista (-11%) underperformed as the reacceleration of COVID in many regions pushes out the reopening of the global cinema industry. Around 55% of global cinema sites are currently open, which is less than at the end of September when around 75% of sites were open. However, the current rollout of vaccines provides comfort the industry will recover later in the year with Vista well positioned to benefit.
