Pathfinder Asset Management is a boutique fund manager based in Auckland. Our focus is on socially responsible investment in global asset classes. Our investment philosophy is simple:
1 – The most critical investment decisions are at a high level. This includes allocating between countries, industries and investment factors (such as value, growth and volatility).
2 – Environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) really matter.Companies that score highly on ESG metrics perform better over the long term (and help the planet and it’s people).
3 – Investment transparency is critical. Simplicity is much better for investors than complexity
4 – Investors see risk as asymmetric.The pleasure from gains is far outweighed by pain of an equivalent sized loss – managing downside risk, currency and volatility is very important
5 – Invest for the long term. A long term investment horizon delivers better risk weighted returns than a short term horizon.
We offer complete transparency and capped fees. We care deeply about risk management, governance and aligning our interests with our investors.
