In that month the Reserve Bank of NZ (RBNZ) held the official cash rate (OCR) at the 21st century high of 8.25 per cent where it […]

The Active/Passive Divide – On The Other Side

Article written by InvestNow

Bogle died in January 2019 just three months before research house Morningstar clocked US passive share fund assets hitting par with actively-managed counterparts for the first time. At the end of April last year “both passive and active U.S. equity funds had a […]

Investors Float on, in Sink-or-Swim Times

Article written by InvestNow From deep down in a hole on March 23, the benchmark NZ shares index had clawed its way back about 25% by late April.

Despite the extraordinary resurrection of the NZX – an effort mirrored in most other world equity markets – the index remains 10%, or so, below its February peak.

Income tax, Einstein said, is “the hardest thing in the world to understand”. But in NZ at least, managed fund investors have it relatively easy, specifically those invested in PIE funds.
