Pathfinder Asset Management is a fund manager focusing investment decisions on people and planet, as well as profit. Pathfinder believes an ethical investment approach is better for our environment, our society and for long-term investment returns. Investing ethically involves a number of steps. This starts with avoiding companies and industries causing harm, but most importantly is a positive focus on where money is invested. Companies with higher environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics can have a positive impact on our planet and also make better financial investments. Pathfinder’s savings scheme (Pathfinder KiwiSaver Scheme) helps members save for retirement by aligning their ethical beliefs with Pathfinder’s investment expertise. As well as striving for savings to work hard, Pathfinder KiwiSaver's social enterprise approach supports a family of 17 charities doing good in the community. 20% of KiwiSaver management fees are donated to these charities and every KiwiSaver member has a say in how donations are allocated. The mission is to provide long-term and sustainable income streams to charities with impact. Pathfinder is a UNPRI signatory and an active member of RIAA.
