With one simple purchase you get an investment in a range of securities, such as listed companies or government bonds, spreading your risk more broadly.

Lower Fees

Smartshares funds keep costs down because in most cases (with the exception of the SmartIncome funds) the fund manager does not need to make active investment decisions, which may require an investment in research and analytical expertise.


Smartshares units trade like individual shares. From as little as $500 up front and $50 per month, our regular savings plan is a simple and affordable way to accumulate units.


As Smartshares funds are listed on the NZX Main Board, they give you the same transparency as an investment in individual shares.

“Many New Zealand shareholders own shares in just one or a few companies. That’s not clever.”
Mary Holm (BA, MA, MBA, financial columnist and seminar presenter) in
“Upside Downside - a guide to risk savers and Investors”,
published by the Reserve Bank of NZ.
