Relying on the interest from a term deposit to grow your savings at a desirable rate is no longer really an option. Kiwis may need to adopt a new way of growing their wealth through managed funds and learning to embrace a certain level of risk. David McLeish who is Head of Fixed Interest in our investment team explains more on this in a short video below.


Determining whether you should include managed funds as part of your investment strategy is easy once you are able to answer these 3 key questions:

  • What level of risk are you comfortable with?
  • What is the timeframe of your investment?
  • What is the goal you are working towards?

These questions may seem daunting, but we have an experienced team of advisers who will be able to help you find your way and help determine if managed funds may be suitable for you, feel free to get in touch on 0508 FISHER or via email. We also have a handy online Investor Profile Questionnaire that will allow you to find an investment strategy that works for you.
