ASB Investment Funds Fund Returns

The table below shows the ASB Investment Funds fund returns as at 31 October 2016.

Returns are a reflection of past performance and are not a guarantee or indication of future performance because returns fluctuate (move up and down). Returns can be negative and you may receive back less than the total amount of your contributions.

From 24 March 2016 we will only accept applications for units in the World Fixed Interest Fund and the World Shares Fund from:

a. wholesale investors; or
b. discretionary investment management service (DIMS) licensees where the DIMS licensee decides to buy the units on behalf of a person in the course of supplying a DIMS to the person.

  1. Returns are for periods after the commencement of PIE status. For all funds (except World Fixed Interest Fund) this was 1 October 2007. For the World Fixed Interest Fund this was 17 September 2010.
  2. The returns are calculated on the change in exit price of the units in each fund for the period, adjusted for tax credits, and are the returns on funds invested at the beginning of the period, with all distributions reinvested and no subsequent withdrawals or additional investments. Returns for periods greater than 1 year are annualised. Returns for periods less than 1 year are not annualised.
  3. Since 7 September 2012, the cash portion of each fund has been managed using an active investment management style. The returns in previous periods reflect an index tracking investment management style for cash.
  4. The returns reflect the market indices and asset allocations that applied during the relevant return period. These may differ from the current market indices and asset allocations.
