SuperLife KiwiSaver Performance - May 2022

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

Using the most recent returns from May 2022, we will take a look at SuperLife's recent KiwiSaver Performance.

 

SuperLife is managed by Smartshares Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NZX Limited. SuperLife has over 50,000 members and offers KiwiSaver, investment, superannuation, and insurance options. The philosophy behind SuperLife is that investing in a more passive manner would provide greater long-term outcomes. They don't believe that investing in and out of the market on a frequent basis is always beneficial to investors.

During the first week of May, a global sell-off commenced, led by U.S. technology firms, which recorded their largest one-day fall since June 2020. Investors across the world are frightened by high inflation and rising interest rates after the US Federal Reserve's decision to increase interest rates by 0.50% compared to its prior projection, putting pressure on other central banks around the world to perform aggressive hikes to combat inflation.
