This data is compiled by Mindful Money from the fund information and portfolios that each fund has filed with the Disclose register to Wed March 31st 2021 and Mindful Money analysis of funds within those portfolios. The list of companies of concern has been drawn from ratings agencies and public sources, including the Norwegian Sovereign Fund, NZ Super Fund, Sustainalytics and research organisations.

Note that the fund’s exclusions policy may not be consistent with its portfolio holdings because the fund might be still implementing its policy change or their policy may be less stringent than the definitions applied by Mindful Money.

Note that many funds exclude controversial weapons. However, the category of Weapons used in this analysis is broader in scope, covering all munitions, firearms and military weapons. Similarly Mindful Money uses a broader scope for fossil fuels than the government’s rules for default KiwiSaver funds. The full definitions used in the Mindful Money analysis are here.

In their own words

"The International Equity Fund invests in international equities primarily in developed markets with the ability to invest to a lesser extent in emerging market countries. It aims to provide a gross return in excess of its benchmark index over the long term."
