About the Bonus Bonds wind-up
From 7pm on 25 August 2020, ANZ Investment Services (New Zealand) Limited stopped accepting new investment into the Bonus Bonds Scheme. From 9pm on 31 October 2020 the wind-up of the Scheme commenced and the money from bondholders was locked in to be distributed as part of the wind-up.
Distribution of funds to bondholders
All bondholders who held Bonus Bonds after the wind-up was announced on 31 October 2020, and provide their bank account details, will be paid out.
In December 2021, we made an initial payment of $1.10 per Bonus Bond. In July 2022, we commenced making a second and final payment of $0.0248 per Bonus Bond. The total amount that bondholders will receive for their Bonus Bonds is $1.1248 per Bonus Bond.
Bondholders who provided account details prior to 14 December 2021 were paid a first distribution on 14 December 2021. These bondholders received their second payment on 5 July 2022.
Bondholders who provided an account number between 14 December 2021 and 27 June 2022 received their first payment within 5 business days of providing the account. These bondholders received their second payment on 5 July 2022.
Bondholders who provide an account number from 28 June 2022 through to the end of the wind-up receive a full payment within 5 business days of providing the account.
It’s not too late to get your payment – provide your bank account details today
If you find a Bonus Bonds certificate or think that you have them, contact our Bonus Bonds team to see if the Bonus Bonds are still live. Call 0800 266 374 or +64 3 474 1299 from overseas (charges may apply), Monday to Friday, 8am - 6pm NZT.
When you call, we’ll do our very best to locate your bondholding while we have you on the phone. In order to help find the details of your bondholding, before you call have a think about any past addresses that you may have used at the time of purchase and whether your bondholding might be under a previous name e.g. a maiden name. In some cases, we may need you to provide additional documents or visit one of our branches; we’ll let you know if that applies to you.
Alternatively, you can provide your payment instructions using the applicable form:
We process payments each week for bondholders who provide their bank account. Depending on when you provide your details to us, payment may take up to 5 business days to process. Note international payments may take an additional 2-5 business days to appear.
Finalising the Bonus Bonds wind-up
The final date by which bondholders need to contact ANZ to receive their distribution payment has not yet been determined. ANZ will continue to accept Bank Account details from bondholders and pay within 5 business days until further notice.
At a yet to be confirmed date, any cash remaining in the scheme that was not able to be distributed to bondholders will be managed in accordance with section 149 of the Trusts Act.
