Managed funds make investing simple. Whether you’re just getting started or looking to expand your investment portfolio, managed funds enable you to instantly invest in a diversified portfolio of assets. There are different investing options that have varying targeted growth rates and degrees of risk, and you can choose the one that fits best with your financial goals. Chief Investment Officer, Ashley Gardyne explains more on this below.


In a managed fund, your money is pooled together with other investors to create a larger fund that allows for stronger buying power and access to investment opportunities you may not necessarily have access to as an individual investor. This means you don't have to directly invest in companies yourself.

With us, you will be buying into some of the best companies, fixed interest investments and even commercial property, all supported by our investment management expertise. Essentially you could be a part owner of great companies such as the likes of Google, Amazon or Mainfreight.

One of the key benefits of investing with us is that you can learn to become a better investor. Our advice team is here to help you make smart decisions with your money and tailor an investment strategy to suit your goals. We will keep you informed through regular communications and newsroom articles. You'll know where your money is invested, and why we select the companies or fixed interest investments for our funds.
