Changes to the WiNZ fund, First cash PIE for advisers on wrap. Big gain for investors.

Monday, December 17th 2007, 6:47AM
Changes are being made to the AMP Investments' World Index Fund (WiNZ) to improve its operational efficiency and become a Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE).

Also changes being made is to the index the fund tracks. It will change from calculating the index on a capital basis to calculating it on a gross basis. Currently, the capital value of the securities that the Fund invests in excludes the value of distributions to the Fund in relation to such securities. Changing to a gross index will include the value of reinvested distributions and should provide investors with a clearer understanding of the return on the Fund's investments.

First cash PIE a wrap


The, known, first cash PIE in the market comes in various forms. The retail version, the Cash Advantage Fund, is being pushed by RaboPlus.

However, the fund's manager, AMP Capital, also has a version for advisers which is now available on the FNZ and Aegis Wrap platforms.

AMP Capital head of sales and marketing, Anthony Edmonds, says a cash PIE offers real advantages for investors no matter what their marginal tax rate is.
