Pathfinder Asset Management

Pathfinder Asset Management focuses on responsible investment in global assets. Its investment approach revolves around people, planet, principles and profit. It looks to provide great returns that have a responsible, positive and sustainable impact.

With a goal of becoming New Zealand’s most ethical KiwiSaver provider it launched CareSaver in July 2019. It donates 20% of the income it earns from CareSaver management fees to a group of 17 charities working on social and environmental issues. This provides a passive, long term and sustainable annual income that supports those charities to increase the impact of their work.

In March 2020 Pathfinder donated $20,000 to the group of charities. It’s aiming to increase that to $100,000 in 2021. Ultimately it plans to secure 2% of the KiwiSaver market which would mean an annual donation of more than $2 million.
