The list of companies of concern has been drawn from ratings agencies and public sources, including the Norwegian Sovereign Fund, NZ Super Fund and research organisations.

Note that the fund’s intended exclusions may not be consistent with the analysis of the portfolio because of timing issues or because there are companies of concern in indirect investments by the fund.

Note that many KiwiSaver funds exclude controversial weapons. However, the category of Weapons used in this analysis is broader in scope, covering all munitions, firearms and military weapons.

It also has a small allocation to growth assets which generally have higher levels of risk with the potential for higher returns. It aims to achieve relatively stable returns over the short to medium term."
