How your savings are invested

How your savings are invested

Your savings are pooled with those of other members and, through an investment in Mercer Investment Trusts New Zealand (MITNZ), invested in a range of assets, including shares (also known as equities), fixed interest and cash. The trustee of MITNZ appoints specialist investment managers to manage particular types of assets (called asset classes). The mix of investments invested in each asset class reflects the collective investment choices of members and is adjusted continually as contributions are made by or on behalf of members, benefits are paid, members change their investment choice and new members come on board.
