Our funds and products

Investment returns

We take investment performance seriously. Our goal is to generate robust and very competitive returns for the least amount of risk required.  

Compared with other funds, we generally have fewer or smaller losses when markets are falling. Importantly, we still make a large share of the gains when markets rise. In short, you could say we manage investment risk really well.  

Read more about Our Investment Philosophy.

When you’re comparing funds, it’s important to look at lifetime performance, not just short-term results over 1, 3 or 5 years. You’ll be saving for retirement for your whole career, after all.

Fund performance rankings vary a lot depending on short term market fluctuations, which is why it’s important to view your investments over your lifetime. We’ve got more about this in our Investment series.

But, if you still really want the numbers, our aggressive investment option (one you might choose if you’re early in your career) has performed in the top ten funds for the last 3, 5, 10 and 15 years1.

The most ethical approach is integrated

We understand the importance of investing ethically – for our customers, for ourselves, for our future. We also honestly appreciate the complexity of measuring and improving genuine ethical impact.

Because one person’s ethics may differ from another’s, we focus objectively on investment opportunities that offer a fair rate of return for their embedded risks and also have the potential to contribute to a better future – for you, your retirement and the world.

Sustainable, accountable business practices are reflected in financial value and goodwill (also known as ‘intangible capital’) and contribute to higher quality economic growth. We support those practices. And practise them ourselves.

“What is done to create growth today has implications for the quality of our growth tomorrow”, Alison Tarditi, CIO. Our investment portfolio contributes to building a better future.
