Pathfinder KiwiSaver Performance - May 2022

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

Using the most recent returns from May 2022, we will examine Pathfinder’s recent KiwiSaver Performance.

Pathfinder KiwiSaver Scheme, formerly known as Caresaver Kiwisaver, is an independent fund manager with a strong focus on Responsible Investment (RI). A conservative fund is one of three actively-managed KiwiSaver funds offered by the company, which range from low-risk to high-risk. Pathfinder is a big believer in ethical investing and only invests in companies with high ESG ratings. They believe that these businesses are beneficial for our planet and its people.

During the first week of May, a global sell-off commenced, led by U.S. technology firms, which recorded their largest one-day fall since June 2020. Investors across the world are frightened by high inflation and rising interest rates after the US Federal Reserve's decision to increase interest rates by 0.50% compared to its prior projection, putting pressure on other central banks around the world to perform aggressive hikes to combat inflation.
