    Abstract

    This note presents the data and technical detail underlying a new set of estimates of gross asset returns since 1989 for a wide range of assets relevant to New Zealanders. The estimates have an economy-wide lens. An individual investor is likely to be interested in the realised risk and return they can achieve, as determined by a range of additional factors like taxes or personal circumstances. The analysis presented here is designed to illustrate conceptually the construction of a diversified portfolio and the practical advantage in doing so in a world of considerable uncertainty.
