Manager's Commentary

Foreign currency exposures associated with international fixed interest are hedged to the New Zealand dollar. We actively manage the fund’s currency exposures associated with international and Australian equities. As at 31 October 2020, these exposures represented 15.85% of the value of the fund. After allowing for foreign currency hedges in place, approximately 11.30% of the value of the fund was unhedged and exposed to foreign currency risk.

The next Manager’s commentary will be included in the December Performance Summary (available January 2021).
