strong markets and uncertain times?

Mike Taylor, CEO & CIO, Pie Funds Hello there, Markets go in cycles and if you’ve been around a while, you will know that roughly every 10-15 years shares - and even property - can go through some tough times, 1973, 1987, 2000, 2008 to name a few from recent decades. Now, with a bull market in just about everything, the question is, when will this current cycle end? I’ve been watching these cycles for a while now. From a very early age, I knew that I wanted to be an investor. Not every boy’s dream, but the excitement of new technologies and discovering great companies was always the kind of thing I loved. I started investing in 1998 and had quite a good run, turning $13,000 into $200,000 over a handful of years…

why would you start a business?

One chief executive was painting walls at 2am with her friends and family, to meet the deadline for opening a restaurant. Another spent a sleepless night wondering how he’d find money to pay his staff during the Global Financial Crisis. Yet another beginner boss was trying to do everything herself, down to project-managing a build and manning the reception desk. These are the realities of starting a business. I have huge respect for the people I interviewed as case studies for this business issue of JUNO: Burger Burger’s Mimi Gilmour Buckley, Heletranz’s Sofia Ambler, and Perceptive’s Chris Pescott. Each of them overcame what looked like impossible odds to set up their own companies. There are two ways businesses help New Zealand and New Zealanders. One is as part of our stock exchange, as they grow bigger and…

it’s a party!

The JUNO KiwiSaver Scheme celebrated its launch in August, with a cool, purple-themed party at the Auckland Museum Events Centre. The scheme’s founders, Jacqueline and Mike Taylor, introduced the evening, attended by around 300 people. They explained how they brought together JUNO magazine’s plain English skills with Pie Funds’ financial expertise to create a product that’s brought disruption to the KiwiSaver market. The JUNO KiwiSaver Scheme subscription model of low, fixed, monthly fees in dollar terms, plus no fees for under 18s and balances under NZ$5,000, make it a KiwiSaver scheme like no other.

what we like

Best of the Seasons Fresh local food, great wine, and a modern interior inspired by the Hawke’s Bay landscape make Craggy Range’s newly refurbished restaurant a must-visit in the Bay. Since coming on board a year ago, head chef Casey McDonald has brought with him a passion for seasonal and local produce, forming close relationships with local farmers and suppliers, and taking inspiration from Craggy’s own fruit and vegetable garden, transforming the restaurant’s menu. The interior of the restaurant has undergone a similar transformation, following a full refit over the winter. With an interior created by design studio Izzard, the upgrade includes an expanded bar area, comfortable booth seating, and an open, bespoke kitchen. The restaurant’s warm, understated luxury and design are inspired by the seasons, reflected in a natural colour palette. Many diners choose the…
