Winter 2022 Edition

With winter in full swing, media coverage of investment markets has also been pretty chilly. Concerns about inflation and global growth have seen markets fluctuate and created uncertainty amongst many investors. 

It’s easy to forget that these kinds of fluctuations are nothing new. But just as winter inevitably turns to spring, history shows that markets also rebound. That’s why looking beyond the current headlines is key. In this edition you can read about why we believe our long-term investment approach delivers better returns over time – and how a long-term perspective can help you manage through the ups and downs of investing. You can also read our views on what’s happening in markets and what you can expect to see over the next few weeks.

Part of our long-term approach is ensuring that we take a wider view when making investment decisions. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are increasingly important drivers of long-term returns and the appointment of our new Head of Responsible Investment, Helen Skinner, recognises that. In this edition we introduce Helen and explain why responsible investing is so critical to long-term performance. 

Another example of our long-term perspective is our enduring support of Daffodil Day, the Cancer Society’s main annual fundraising event. For more than three decades ANZ has been helping the Cancer Society ensure no New Zealander has to face cancer alone.  Find out more about this year’s Daffodil Day, and how you can get involved. 

One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to your safety. With scammers and fraudsters becoming increasingly clever, we provide some practical tips and tricks to help you protect your personal information and keep yourself safe online.

Thanks for your continued support of ANZ Private. I hope you enjoy the read.

General Manager, ANZ Private
