JUNO investing magazine is a New Zealand luxury investment and lifestyle magazine which explains in plain English your financial options and how to build wealth. It covers the share market, property investment, KiwiSaver, personal finance, the economy, books, travel, and all the good things in life you can buy when you invest wisely.

you don’t own debt. debt owns you.

When we look at companies to invest in we don’t like to see too much debt. It can mean they’ve been doing some tricky things to look better short-term, but it certainly means they have fewer choices if the wind changes. We look for sustainable fundamentals like cash burn and growth rates, as we’ve seen high-debt companies end up distressed, diluted or missing their potential. Low debt can also mean better returns, as many of our clients have found in their personal finances; careful choices, like paying down the mortgage, have meant they’ve been well placed to now diversify and invest into our managed funds. 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…

an inspirational leader

As we celebrate, I’d like to honour Jacqueline Taylor, the visionary co-founder, publisher and editor-in-chief behind JUNO, as she steps away from the helm of the magazine. When the registered primary school teacher married fund manager Mike Taylor and worked alongside him at Pie Funds, she realised that the complex language of investing was stopping ordinary people taking steps towards financial freedom, and she decided to do something about it. With Mike, she co-founded Moneta magazine, to help people understand the basics of investing. Later, Moneta evolved into JUNO and launched into the retail market, where it’s been a big hit with Kiwis keen to learn more about investing. She says: “When I started this magazine in 2014, I spoke to many Kiwis who felt that investing was out of their reach and…

early retirement

The Continental Cars Ferrari Showroom in Auckland was the perfect venue for the JUNO Exchange event on 21 March. There was lots of inspiration for people who want to retire early – especially those with a new Ferrari on their wish-list. JUNO editor Brenda Ward told the 90 people who attended that it’s many people’s dream to work their way through a bucket list. “Maybe it’s spending a year in Provence, maybe it’s spending every day on the golf course. Maybe it’s driving a Ferrari Portofino. Or maybe it’s as simple as spending more time with friends and family.” JUNO’s experts covered ways to invest, to help you give up the nine to five. Even those who’d already retired and were expanding their portfolio would have lots to think about, she said. Acting manager…
