mysuper Conservative Fund
Our Conservative Fund is a well-diversified investment fund primarily holding 80% lower-risk income assets (i.e. fixed interest and cash) with a 20% allocation to growth assets (like equities). The objective of our Conservative Fund is to achieve a low likelihood of negative returns over the short to medium term (between one to three years), whilst providing the opportunity for positive real returns (in excess of inflation) over the long term (around ten years plus).
How does our Conservative Fund meet your needs?
Our Conservative Fund provides diversification within the fixed income asset class through exposure to a range of sectors and securities around the world. It aims to deliver more stable returns by also diversifying across investment styles.
Our Conservative Fund has exposure to a well-diversified portfolio of longer term fixed interest securities and smaller exposure to equities. This helps minimise risk and broaden the opportunity set.
Access to some of the world’s best investment managers
Our Conservative Fund uses a combination of passive and active management to invest your retirement savings. You benefit from exposure to a range of high quality investment managers.
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.
