SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT FUND
Do good, invest well
The guiding philosophy of the QuayStreet Socially Responsible Investment Fund is to endeavour to have a diversified portfolio of investments that are considered to be environmentally and socially sustainable, whilst still applying our traditional portfolio investment criteria.
The Socially Responsible Investment Fund is one of New Zealand’s longest running socially responsible retail funds.
The Fund invests in income (e.g. fixed interest) and growth assets (e.g. shares) which are selected in accordance with our Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Policy. The investment objective is to provide a return above the Fund’s benchmark over the long term.

Fund Profile: Growth - Balanced*
The portfolio can vary between a Growth and a Balanced investment strategy, allowing the portfolio manager to adjust the Fund’s overall risk exposure depending on market conditions. The socially responsible investment fund universe is smaller and this may affect the Fund’s returns and volatility relative to a traditional portfolio. Investment returns may vary considerably from year to year and may be negative.
The Fund’s investments are spread across multiple asset types, geographies, markets, issuers, sectors and maturities to provide a high level of diversification. The Fund has the ability to invest in other funds that align with QuayStreet’s socially responsible investment process and criteria. The Fund may use derivatives for the purposes of risk management or to obtain desired market exposures. The Fund’s return is measured in New Zealand dollars and currency exposure is actively managed in a manner consistent with the investment objectives.
Our Socially Responsible Investment Fund offers our clients an opportunity to invest in accordance with their own ethical beliefs.
