• Evidential Sustainable Global Bond Fund

    A global bond fund that follows an evidence based investment philosophy to provide investors with exposure to international fixed income and money market securities.

  • Fund overview

    The Evidential Sustainable Global Bond Fund is designed to provide New Zealand investors with tax efficient, evidence based exposure to a broadly diversified portfolio of international fixed income and money market securities.

    The fund also takes into account environmental and sustainability impact as well as social considerations, whilst maintaining the objective to maximise the return of the portfolio.

    The fund is not managed with the objective of achieving a particular return relative to a benchmark index. However, the benchmark index against which fund returns will be reported in the quarterly fund updates for the fund is the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Bond Index hedged to the New Zealand dollar.

  • Risk Indicator

    The risk indicator reflects how much the value of the fund’s assets goes up and down. A higher risk rating generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. This fund is suited to an investor with a medium to high tolerance to risk and a minimum timeframe of 3+ years.
