we invest like it’s our own money. because it is.

When you invest with Pie Funds, you invest alongside every member of our team. Around 1/7th of the money we manage comes from our shareholders and staff. In fact, staff can only invest in the share market through us. We care for our investments like they’re our own, as, well, they are. We also look for this commitment in companies we invest in. We love stocks where managers are heavily invested. We’ve found that if leadership stands to do well, it’s more likely everyone does. It stands to reason, but you’d be amazed how uncommon common sense can be in the financial markets. This is one of five principles that have helped us achieve some of the best returns in the business. Find out the other four at piefunds.co.nz/five Do get in…

dreaming of a no-stress life

Many of us dream of giving up work in our 30s, 40s or 50s and having the time to follow our passions, travel, and relax. Hold that thought. You may not still have that plan once you’ve read all the stories in this issue of JUNO. Expert in money and retirement psychology Barry LaValley says our minds and bodies are not suited to a life of leisure. It can lead to higher rates of chronic illness, broken marriages, and depression. He says the happiest retirees have low levels of ‘good’ stress, which help them achieve contentment. Two people we interviewed tried retiring early, didn’t enjoy it – and went back to work. That certainly wasn’t what we expected to find when we looked at retiring early… However, if you still want to say goodbye to the…

what we like

A Gem of a Talent A love of the New Zealand landscape has been inspiring a master jeweller to custom make high-quality items for 26 years. Greg Holland uses locally sourced gold and often recycled platinum to handcraft unique jewellery, like his latest collection, ‘Inspired’. “The Inspired collection pays homage to the New Zealand landscape and so far has featured glaciers and rivers of the South Island,” he explains. “These have a local and international appeal with customers who have been to New Zealand, or have been inspired by the imagery of something like The Lord of the Rings series,” Holland says. Holland has a special interest in sourcing unusual, high-quality gemstones and large diamonds. He shares his extensive knowledge of design, gemstone selection and smart diamond purchasing with his customers, so he can create…
