What is a Market Index?
A market index is a metric that can help track performance. A market index contains similar assets and has similar risk to the JUNO funds, and so is a good reference point for judging performance. Every fund type is made up of a different mix of asset types.
Each asset type (equities, fixed income and cash) in each fund has a market index. So, the market index figures shown combine two or more market indices, depending on the assets in the fund. For example, the JUNO Growth Fund combines market indices for equities and cash. Finally, the combination of market indices for each fund is weighted according to its target asset mix.
For example, the market index return for the JUNO Growth Fund is 80% the return of the market index for equities and 20% the return of the market index for cash. More information about the JUNO KiwiSaver Scheme market indices can be found in the Statement of Investment Policy and Objectives (SIPO).
