Data and quantitative star ratings displayed sourced from FE Fundinfo

Performance Methodology

Performance is calculated with all figures rounded to four decimal places on an 'Exit to Exit' price basis, assuming investors are long term investors, with all distributions reinvested at ex-distribution prices. statistics are structured so similar type funds are grouped together with an appropriate asset class index. Fund performances are expressed net of fees and gross of tax. All performance returns for periods over one year are annualised.

Star Rating Methodology

Star ratings are a comparison between funds investing in assets with similar characteristics using a return measure that has been adjusted for risk. The star ratings are purely quantitative and use the most recent 36 months of performance data. The funds in a sector are ranked according to their risk-adjusted return. The top and bottom 15% earn 5 stars and 1 star respectively, the next top and bottom 20% earn 4 stars and 2 stars, and the middle 30% earn 3 stars. In this way the variability of performance return is considered. So where two funds in the same sector earn similar returns, but one is more volatile than the other, the more volatile fund is likely to get a lower star rating than the other. Alternatively, where two funds have similar volatility but one earns higher returns than the other, the fund with the higher return is likely to get a higher star rating.

Investment entities with less than a three year history have no rating. Funds in sectors with less than 10 constituents are not rated. Star ratings do not include any qualitative analysis. While it is helpful to consider how volatile a fund has been in the past, it is also important to consider more forward looking qualitative
elements such as analysis of the portfolio manager and the process they use in managing a fund.

Disclaimer: Performance shown is on an after fees, before tax basis, and distributions are assumed to be reinvested. Where available, tax credits are added back into the fund’s unit price for the period specified. Performance returns over one year have been annualized. Australian fund returns are in NZ dollar terms but Australian fund exit prices are in A$ as are fund sizes. The exit price shown is that applicable on the last market day of the month. The standard deviation reflects the volatility of a unit’s price over the previous three years by showing how widely the range of returns for the unit varies for the denoted point in time, but also reflect the fact that the fund manager was not able to send us data in time for the report.
