The risk indicator reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way.
Note that even the lowest category does not mean a risk-free investment, and there are other risks that are not captured in this rating. This risk indicator is not a guarantee of a fund’s future performance. While risk indicators are usually relatively stable, they do shift from time to time. The risk indicator reflects the most recent quarterly fund update or the PDS if a fund update has not yet been produced and will continue to be updated in future fund updates. See the product disclosure statement (PDS) for more information about the risk indicator and the risks associated with investing in this fund.
The Hedged Global Share Fund targets 100% hedging to New Zealand dollars, meaning that its performance is not expected to be impacted by currency exchange rate fluctuations, only by movements (up and down) in the value of the underlying investment assets.
The Unhedged version of the Global Share Fund is affected by both movements (up and down) in the value of the underlying investment assets, and fluctuations (up and down) in foreign currency exchange rates vs. the New Zealand dollar.
Yes. While the underlying investments of these funds are the same, the Unhedged Global Share Fund’s performance will be impacted (positively or negatively) by fluctuations in the value of the various foreign currencies versus the New Zealand Dollar. Note that while most exchange rate risk is removed for the Hedged Global Equity Fund, the Fund will incur some hedging transaction costs.
Yes. Investors can invest in both the Hedged Global Share Fund and the Unhedged Global Share Fund. The minimum investment is $1,000 per fund.
