ASB KiwiSaver Performance - April 2022

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

Using the most recent returns and fund update reports from April 2022, we will examine ASB’s recent KiwiSaver Performance.

Over the years, ASB has grown to be one of New Zealand's largest banks, managing over $13.5b in assets under management and serving over 530,000 KiwiSaver members. With this pledge, ASB stated that it will give back to the community, grow, and support the endeavours of New Zealanders.

The inflation outlook, while highly uncertain over the medium term, is worryingly high at present. This month was all about interest rates, with the Reserve Bank of New Zealand hiking the OCR (Interest Rates) twice as much as expected, to 0.50% instead of 0.25% to combat inflation.
