Record Quarter For Net Funds Flow

ANZ Funds Management Announces Record Quarter For Net Funds Flow

ANZ Funds Management today announced that it had received an all time record retail net flow into its funds of NZ$103 million, for the quarter ending 30th June 2001.

ANZ Funds Management General Manager, Graham Duston, believed that there were a number of different reasons for this record quarter including a more sophisticated and educated investing public.

"Although we have had some very volatile investment markets over the last 12 months we are starting to find that both existing and prospective investors understand investment cycles better today. They tend to be more focused on their long term goals and strategies as opposed to short term market fluctuations," he said.

Mr Duston also stated that while ANZ has been effective in its own efforts to educate and inform clients, as well as providing solid returns for investors, a lot of the work done by the industry and financial commentators over the last few years had set the education frame work in place.

The record net funds flow was received across all product sectors and asset classes. Recent distribution initiatives within ANZ had involved developing and launching a mass-market proposition for its branch network to compliment its existing Financial Planner proposition. This had also been a strong contributor.

"Funds Management has traditionally been seen as something for people with a lot of money. Whilst we have a very strong Wealth Management programme in place, this new proposition compliments the existing programme and means that we can now offer a strong funds management proposition to most investors in New Zealand," Mr Duston said.
