AMP Capital's Conservative Fund returned 2.1% for the March quarter. The Balanced Fund returned 2.8% for the quarter and the Growth Fund returned 3.6%. The Balanced Responsible Investment Fund returned 3 percent for the quarter.

Despite a sharp correction during March, shares ended the first quarter with positive returns, said Bob Cunneen, senior economist with AMP Capital's investment strategy team.

The Unhedged Global Equities Fund returned 8 percent for the quarter, Hedged Global Equities returned 3.8%, and New Zealand Equities average return was four for the quarter.
