How does our Cash Fund meet your needs
Proven track record
Our Cash Fund is managed by AMP Capital’s New Zealand Fixed Income team based in Wellington. The team has over 50 years’ combined investment experience.
AMP Capital has one of the most experienced teams in the management of cash investments and has a proven track record in delivering returns above the market index.
AMP Capital’s investment team considers economic fundamentals, market sentiment, fund flows and relative value between the cash rate and other securities along the yield curve in determining the selection of suitable securities.
Extremely low levels of volatility
Our Cash Fund provides liquidity and extremely low levels of volatility. There are, however, opportunities for active management to add value through a combination of interest rate and credit strategies.
It gives you the choice to invest responsibly
Responsible investing is a way for you to direct your money toward companies that are making a positive impact on the environment and on society and away from those that cause harm.

Managed funds in New Zealand must have a standard risk indicator. The risk indicator is designed to help investors understand the uncertainties both for loss and growth that may affect their investment. You can compare Funds using the risk indicator.
The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high). The rating 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.
To help you clarify your own attitude to risk, you can seek financial advice or work out your risk profile at sorted.org.nz/calculators/investment-planner Note that even the lowest category does not mean a risk-free investment, and there are other risks (described below under the heading ‘Other specific risks’) that are not captured by 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.
