Tips

So you think you’re better off in a money market fund?

Over the last five years the poor performance of the local stock market has led many investors to consider moving away from equity unit trusts. Many have preferred the perceived security of money market funds, where returns have been higher.

Between 1 July 2014 and 30 June 2019, the money market delivered around 7% per year. According to figures from Morningstar, only four out of the 96 local equity funds with track records that long performed better than that. The average equity fund returned only 3.5% per year over this period.

At face value, it therefore would seem that the money market has obviously been the better place to be invested. Every money market fund in the country outperformed the average equity fund.

Things are not always what they seem

However, investors should be cautious about making simple comparisons when looking at returns from different asset classes. That is because the form of this growth is different, and therefore how it is taxed is different. And that can have a significant impact on returns.
