Manager's comments

Summer New Zealand Cash delivered a return of .07% for the month.

The Official Cash Rate (OCR) is currently 1.75%.

We expect the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) to maintain accommodative monetary policy and we see limited prospect of an increase in our Official Cash Rate (OCR) over the course of this year. We do caution that with annual inflation now at 2.2% (the highest since 2011) we see an increasing chance that the RBNZ will prematurely hike the OCR sooner that widely anticipated; we note that this is not our core view.

Our strategy to boost fund returns is to invest in shorter-term securities issued by what we regard to be high quality domestic entities, such as the New Zealand Local Government Funding Agency and New Zealand registered banks; these securities complement the portfolio’s on-call investments.
