The Bonus Bonds Scheme is now in wind-up.
From 7pm on 25 August 2020, ANZ Investment Services (New Zealand) Ltd stopped accepting new investment into the Bonus Bonds Scheme. ANZ Investment Services (New Zealand) Limited, the Manager and Trustees Executors Limited, the Supervisor, confirm that wind-up of the Scheme commenced from 9pm on 31 October 2020 and the money from bondholders is now locked in to be distributed as part of the wind-up.

Information on the distribution of funds
Here is the latest distribution information for bondholders around receiving their entitlement as part of the wind-up process. The final amount investors will receive at the end of the wind-up is yet to be determined, as it is dependent on the actual costs to wind up the scheme and any investment income earned after 31 October 2020. Based on the scheme’s financial position as at 31 October 2020, we’re confident investors will receive at least $1.10 per Bonus Bond they hold by the completion of the wind-up. For example, an investor who held $100 worth of Bonus Bonds when the scheme went into wind-up would receive at least $110 by the time the wind-up is completed.
We remain on schedule to make distributions in the second half of 2021.
The financial statements as at 31 October 2020 are available so that you can see information about the financial position of the Bonus Bonds Scheme at the commencement of wind-up. Printed copies of the financial statements and disclosure information are available free of charge on request by calling 0800 266 374 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
