The returns are calculated on the assumption that all foreign tax credits are fully utilised by the investor.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Interests in the ASB Superannuation Master Trust (Scheme) are issued by Smartshares Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of NZX Limited. Smartshares Limited has delegated to ASB Group Investments Limited (ASBGI), the former manager of the Scheme, certain investment management and administration functions in respect of the Scheme. Over time, Smartshares Limited will assume these functions from ASBGI through a transition process which may take several years. For more information see the ASB Superannuation Master Trust Product Disclosure Statement available from this website and the register of offers of financial products at www.disclose-register.companiesoffice.govt.nz/ (search for ASB Superannuation Master Trust).
