Our approach reflects the values of our principals and their long involvement in investor advocacy.
InvestoGain is a guide and an information source for all ages and for all levels of investment experience. In conjunction with our sister site, deListed NZ, we seek to provide a seamless connection between past and present and the warnings to help you avoid failure in future. We do not provide commercial services in NZ or investment advice.
New Zealand has not been a good place to invest. A recent report by Morningstar which looked at the investment conditions for managed fund investors around the world rated each country on a scale of A to F and unfortunately NZ got a D-. The Financial Times reports that "New Zealand was found to be the bottom of the class" and the report also said "NZ scored the worst overall largely because of low grades in the area of disclosure for prospectuses and shareholder reports".
The wave of failures that has just engulfed the finance industry is a repeat of the collapses that occurred twenty years ago. At least some of the principals were involved twice. Here again was a classic case of investors beguiled by return on investment and seemingly oblivious to return of investment.
Our own focus is on proper market disclosure and transparency. Get that right and confidence in New Zealand's capital markets should be restored. With confidence will come investment (domestic in particular) and economic development.
Our vision is for a market place where investors are properly informed. An informed investor is better equiped to compare the merits of financial products and services and make objective rather than random choices.
