Manager's comments

Summer New Zealand Cash delivered a return of 0.11% for the month.

Our interpretation of the regulator’s Financial Stability Report, May 2017, suggests prudential initiatives – minimum debt to income thresholds for home loan borrowers and increased bank capital requirements. While designed to preserve financial stability, these initiatives will also have a positive impact on inflation outcomes. This is due to the fact that rationing the pool of credit available to the residential property market is one way of suppressing demand for housing stock and dissipating associated inflation.

This reinforces our expectation of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand to maintain accommodative monetary policy and we see limited prospect of an increase in the Official Cash Rate over the course of this year.

On this basis we forecast deposit rates to remain at current rates for the remainder of the year.

The fund continues with its strategy of adding what we believe to be high quality debt securities, in order to boost fund returns, as a complement to its cash deposits held with domestic banks.
