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 fund aims to provide diversified exposure to global commodities using financial derivatives. This arrangement allows investors to gain exposure and benefit from investment in the underlying commodities without actually having to own them. The investment takes advantage of market inefficiencies in the pricing structure of commodity futures. The investment strategy aims to modestly outperform the Bloomberg Commodities Index which covers a broad basket of commodity futures encompassing agriculture livestock precious metals industrial metals and energy. As the principal is held in New Zealand dollars foreign currency exposure is minimal. The performance objective is to provide a Gross Return above the return of the Bloomberg Commodity Index fully hedged to New Zealand dollars on a rolling three year basis."
