News Round Up

Bondholders get some good news, FPIA signs top speaker, ANZ launches fund amid the gloom, UDC's new rates, Red ink all over the markets.

Sunday, October 7th 2001, 11:14PM

Bondholders invested in the Park Terrace Property bond in Christchurch may get some of their money back sooner than earlier anticipated.

The trustee, Tower Trust, says a court case against people who have defaulted on their purchases has been brought forward from February to November.

Tower Trust general manager Glenn Clark says this is likely to accelerate the repayment process, assuming the case goes the company's way and purchasers settle.

This case, against 18 purchasers who bought 33 apartments, is expected to net about $7 mill.

Another $4 million is being sought from purchasers who have defaulted but aren't defending their position in court. Clark says it may be necessary to pursue these defaulting purchasers into bankruptcy.

ANZ adds new fund


International shares aren't flavour of the month with investors currently, but that hasn't stopped ANZ Funds Management adding a new offshore equity fund to its range of product range.

The new fund is put together by Frank Russell using its multi-manager, multi-style approach and uses seven managers.

The main difference between this and ANZ's other fund is that the new one is fully invested in shares.

While ANZ uses Frank Russell to advise on its Ascent Investment Programme, the bank no longer has an exclusive arrangement with the firm.

Big Name signed
