Fidelity Life hooks up with global giant

KiwiSaver provider Fidelity Life has teamed up with giant global investment manager Dimensional to launch two new funds.

by Niko Kloeten

Fidelity Life is launching the Asset Class Conservative Kiwi Fund and the Asset Class Growth Kiwi Fund, which will both have DFA Australia (Dimensional) as their primary fund manager.

Dimensional manages more than US$270 billion in assets globally.

It has close links with leading academics in the field of modern finance, including Gene Fama and Ken French and Nobel Laureates Merton Miller, Myron Scholes and Bob Merton.

Normally, access to investing with Dimensional in New Zealand is restricted to a select number of accredited financial advisers and institutions; however, the Fidelity KiwiSaver Scheme now allows KiwiSaver members the opportunity to utilise the Dimensional investment approach.

Further details about the funds and Fidelity’s deal with Dimensional will be provided at a briefing today.

DFA's funds in other countries come with surprising high fees and I hope that that will not be the case with these funds. As DFA employ an index or index-plus approach high fees virtually guarantee below index performance.
