Mint was established in 2006 as a boutique fund manager. The vision of the business was to provide New Zealanders with access to a team of experienced and successful investment professionals through a suite of funds which capture the tax benefits of being portfolio investment entities (PIEs).
Mint’s focus is on investment management. We outsource key functions such as fund administration and custody, allowing us to focus our abilities on generating strong, consistent returns for investors.
We see the independence of the business, its structure, and the successful track records of our investment team as key strengths.
Shared investment and ownership interests create a natural balance.
Mint is owned by key current employees which effectively aligns our investment interests, with those of our clients. Having a vested interest in our business ensures our performance as fund managers, has direct implications for our continuing growth, longevity and success as a company.
Our portfolio managers are provided with the financial incentive to deliver superior investment returns through performance fees. They also share in the company's growth and prosperity as shareholders.
Our Company Values
We respect other people's money and value our personal reputations.
Having worked for many years with several of the world’s leading financial organisations, we assume a disciplined approach to investment. This is directly reflected in our highly successful investment process.
We fully understand our niche and exploit our specialist research to make consistently profitable investments.
Our fees are fully disclosed so there are no surprises.
We believe good corporate governance to be fundamentally important. To ensure our business is professionally managed, we outsource functions such as fund accounting and custody so we can focus on our core competencies. We also limit the amount of money we manage, to ensure we’re highly effective at managing the funds we are entrusted with.
We do business in an open, honest and fair manner and always, in good faith.
We employ the best people to deliver the best results.
If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. We measure success in terms of the investment returns our clients receive.
