ASB Investment Funds

ASB Investment Funds is a managed investment scheme, and because it's a Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE) it can also increase your after-tax returns.

Benefits at a glance

  • Five funds – each has a different risk and reward profile and investment strategy
  • All the funds use a diversified mix of local and international investments
  • As Portfolio Investment Entities (PIEs), ASB Investment Funds' returns are taxed at a maximum of 28%. If your income tax rate is 30% or 33%, this can improve your after-tax returns
  • Each fund has a different investment objective, ranging from conservative to growth. The funds can be invested in income assets, growth assets or a combination of both
  • We can recommend the right fund for your investment needs through our Wealth Advisory Service
  • If you bank with ASB, you can also see your fund's performance online in FastNet Classic internet banking

You will be charged fees for investing in ASB Investment Funds. Fees are deducted from your investment and will reduce your returns. If we invest in other funds, those funds may also charge fees. The fees you pay will be charged in two ways:

  • regular charges (for example, annual fund charges). Small differences in these fees can have a big impact on your investment over the long term;
  • one-off fees (for example, a contribution fee).

Annual fund charges

The annual fund charges in the table above are an estimated percentage of the net asset value of the fund, based on actual fund charges for the year ending 31 March 2016.

The annual fund charges are:

  • our management fee and
  • the supervisor's fee and
  • costs and expenses (other than trading costs) of:
    • the funds and
    • other funds managed by us (ASB Wholesale Funds) that the funds directly invest in and
    • other funds that the ASB Wholesale Funds directly invest in.

The annual fund charges are charged each day to the fund or underlying fund.

GST is currently payable on the supervisor’s fee, costs and expenses and on 10% of the management fee. GST will be added to the fees, together with any other taxes that may be payable in the future.

Contribution fee

The contribution fee is payable on amounts that you invest in ASB Investment Funds unless we tell you otherwise. It will be taken from any lump sum or regular payment you make. You do not pay a contribution fee when you switch between funds.

More information about fees can be found in the Other Material Information document and the ASB Investment Funds Product Disclosure Statement, which can be obtained by calling 0800 108 084 or by emailing invest@asb.co.nz
