Text too small?
Q: How do I find what specific companies make up a sector index and what their influence is? Also, are there funds that track specific sectors and are they tradable short to medium term, either with NZSE or ASX?

A: To find out more about the composition, calculation & weightings on the NZSE visit their site at http://www.nzse.co.nz/exchange/about/indices.html.

There is similar information about the Australian market at
http://www.asx.com.au/asx/statistics/indexInfo.jsp.

There are no funds in NZ that track sectorial indices. There are 3 index funds. They are the TeNZ index fund which tracks the NZSE10 Index, OZY which tracks the Australian 20 Leaders Index and WinZ, which tracks an Merrill Lynch International market index.
