Investing in New Zealand


Hi Barefoot,

I’ve recently moved back to New Zealand. I was wondering what the NZ equivalent of AFIC is, as I am going to begin my NZ share portfolio.

Hi Helen,

You can buy AFIC (or ‘AFUC’ for you Kiwis) on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. It’s exactly the same low-cost investment company that’s been around for well over 80 years. Then again, I’m not an expert on investing in New Zealand — there may be better sheep to shear over there!
