A strong recovery in markets to start the year
As you may have seen or read in the media, global financial markets hit a few road bumps late in 2018. Share markets around the world fell sharply as concerns around trade and rising interest rates put investors on edge. Against this backdrop, global shares fell 13.5%¹ during the fourth quarter.
If you’re a member of one of our KiwiSaver schemes, or an investor in one of ANZ’s investment funds, it’s likely that you noticed a corresponding dip in your account balance. Most of our funds invest in many different types of investments, including shares, bonds, property and cash, and so the big falls in share markets may have been reflected in the value of your investments.
You may still be concerned and so we wanted to give you a quick update on what’s happened since the start of this year.
