Silver rating for multi-asset class funds

ANZ Investments has received a silver rating for all of the multi-asset class funds in its three KiwiSaver schemes, from one of the leading international investment researchers, Morningstar.

ANZ Investments is New Zealand’s largest KiwiSaver provider in terms of members and funds under management, with more than 585,000 members and $4.8 billion in FUM.

”Along with delivering a strong track record of investment performance we’re making it easier for people to understand how KiwiSaver can help them live more comfortably in retirement with tools like the ANZ FutureWise website.”

ANZ Investments has a gold star rating from Morningstar for its single-asset class, International Share Fund in the OneAnswer KiwiSaver scheme.
