ASB KiwiSaver Scheme Returns to Investors

The tables below show the ASB KiwiSaver Scheme returns to investors 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.

  1. Contributions were first invested into the funds on 2 October 2007.
  2. The returns are calculated on the change in unit 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 no subsequent contributions or withdrawals. 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. Prior to 1 April 2011, the management fee was calculated and incorporated into the unit price daily, and deducted from the relevant fund monthly. From 1 April 2011, the management fee has not been incorporated into the unit price or deducted from the fund, but deducted from members accounts monthly. In order to display returns pre and post 1 April 2011 on a comparable basis, the management fee has been factored back in to the returns for the periods from 1 April 2011.
  5. The above 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.
