Mint Asset Management is an independent investment management firm established in 2006 and based in Auckland, New Zealand.
Mint's vision is to provide investors 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).
Generating Returns is all we do. We outsource key functions such as fund administration and custody, allowing us to focus our ability on generating strong, consistent returns for investors.
Mint is wholly owned by its employees. 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 key strengths are our size, structure and independence. This enables us to be flexible and to create solutions that are specific to investor requirements.
What we value
Integrity & Ethics
We act with integrity, respecting other people’s money and the value of our personal reputation. We do business in a clear, transparent way where our investors best interests are put first.
We believe that good corporate governance is fundamentally important to running our business successfully.
Investing in People
We recognise that employing talented people delivers the best results.
We believe environmental, societal, and governance practices should be a primary consideration when making investment decisions and as such have integrated these values into our investment philosophy and process. In addition Mint is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) initiative.
A disciplined, repeatable approach to investing is paramount to our success. We will limit the amount of money we manage, to ensure we continue to be highly effective at managing the funds we are entrusted with.
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.
