Amanah KiwiSaver Performance - September 2021 | National Capital

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

Using the most recent returns from 30th September 2021, we will examine Amanah’s recent KiwiSaver Performance.

Amanah Kiwisaver is a boutique fund management group based in Auckland, specialising in providing ethical investment solutions to New Zealand and international investors. The AE group currently consists of two companies, Always-Ethical Limited and AE KiwiSaver Limited, with solid investment views. They believe that safe investments are good business and sound real estate.

In the months leading up to the end of September, the share market and Amanah’s KiwiSaver Fund returns decreased. The decrease could be due to Auckland’s lockdown, the market calming down after last year's considerable returns or another external factor. However, the decreased returns are not something to worry about as it is natural for the market to fluctuate, and the fluctuation doesn't indicate the long-term performance of these funds.

Amanah Ethical Fund

AE Growth Fund may only hold investments that comply with the Ethical Mandate of the AE KiwiSaver Plan. AE Growth Fund currently is approved to invest in AE Investor, an international equities fund and may also hold cash (New Zealand dollars). AE Growth Fund’s investment objective is to provide an ethical return to investors over the long term while strictly complying with the Ethical Mandate. Amanah has had poor 1-month returns and quarterly returns of -1.17% and -2.75. The Covid-19 lockdown and the current economic state may have influenced the returns of the fund. However, the 1-year performance also falls short of reaching the same returns as the 3-year and 5-year returns. Unfortunately for Amanah’s Ethical Fund, this means the returns of the fund have been underperforming. Still, this past performance does not necessarily mean the returns will continue to underperform in the future.
