Mint Australia New Zealand Active Equity Trust (Retail)
This fund has a portfolio of Australian and New Zealand shares which targets consistent capital growth. This is achieved through active management of the portfolio, investing in a range of companies through every stage of the economic cycle. By investing in companies we are trying to capture the growth of the underlying economy in which we are investing and, by actively managing the portfolio we are looking to add value over and above the underlying economy. Shares are referred to as a growth asset class. Values are expected to rise in the long run. However, over shorter time frames share markets rise and fall which creates volatility and requires investors in shares to have a tolerance for these ups and downs and for them to be prepared to take a longer term view of their investments of at least five years.
