What is the
at Perpetual Guardian?
What is the advantage of Investment Advisory at Perpetual Guardian?
Part of our investment advantage is that we differ from the mainstream given our longstanding presence in the professional trustee environment. We’ve acted as trusted partners for many of New Zealand’s private individuals & charitable trusts for 135 years. Managing the intergenerational transfer of wealth is a responsibility we embrace and we take pride in managing money efficiently for the long term.
The team at Perpetual Guardian base our investment advisory on the following pillars:
- Listen – Our advice process is very much dependent on the quality and depth of our engagement with you.
- Advise – We consider all the information provided and make our recommendations clear and concise.
- Implement – We implement and report on any agreed strategy.
- Monitor – We conduct formal reviews and reports based on your preferred method and frequency of contact.
Our Investment Style
You work hard for your wealth, so we’re generally cautious with an emphasis on preserving your capital.
This investment style has evolved over decades of developing our investment beliefs with an over-arching recognition of our fiduciary history. We have been looking after other people’s money for over 135 years and whilst the latest trends may be very appealing to some sectors of the market, experience dictates a more cautious approach is the less volatile and more rewarding path.
Consequently, our long-term strategies enable us to deliver consistent results that reflect our long-term views and beliefs.
We also favour evidence-based tracking of markets that we believe are effective. These are generally the developed markets of the US, Europe and Japan. We favour exposure to these markets via Exchange-traded Funds as a cost-effective entry into highly developed sectors. We do, however, believe that local markets are of sufficient size and scale for us to add extra value with direct exposures to both share and bond markets in both Australia and New Zealand.
