Investment returns (before tax and fees) for the quarter ending 31 December 2021 are:

Fund 3 months 1 Year (p.a.) 3 years (p.a.) 5 years (p.a.) 10 years (p.a.)

Income Fund -0.2% -0.4% 3.0% 3.1% 3.9%

A positive quarter for funds, particularly those with exposure to shares. Long term returns were good across all the funds. COVID news continued to dominate but despite the markets being concerned at times shares carried on with their upward track, with some share performances in international equity markets performing strongly. Fixed interest (bonds) investments however were mixed with concerns around the inflation and interest rate outlook holding back returns in that sector.
