“This quarter’s decrease in household net worth was mainly due to the continuing fall in equity and investment fund shares and value of owner-occupied property,” Stats NZ’s national accounts institutional sectors senior manager Paul Pascoe said.


Decreased property values have led the falls in household net worth since the September quarter 2022, Pascoe said.

Equity and investment fund shares fell 2.2 per cent in this quarter. Equity includes the ownership of rental properties, which has also been impacted by falling property values, he said.

The fall in equity and investment fund shares was partly offset by a NZ$3.3 billion rise in currency and deposits, and a NZ$2.6 billion increase in insurance and pensions, statistics showed.

Insurance and pensions increased due to higher pension entitlements and decreasing outstanding insurance claims, mainly from Cyclone Gabrielle and Auckland Anniversary flood payouts, Pascoe said.

A rise in household loans of NZ$2.5 billion also contributed to the decline in household net worth, he said.
