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.

After a 12-month review of ANZ Investments’ funds, Morningstar concluded ‘ANZ Investments’ KiwiSaver schemes continue to set the standard for multi-sector investing in New Zealand…we believe they are among the best KiwiSaver options in New Zealand.’

business. Whether investors chose a conservative, balanced or a growth fund, ANZ Investments funds have a silver rating, ranking them among the best in the country.”

Until this year, bronze was the highest rating achieved by multi-asset class funds in a KiwiSaver scheme.

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.
