Traditionally, buying shares in large companies, either here in New Zealand or elsewhere in the world, only made sense if you had a lot of money to invest. Just the transaction fees on buying and selling small amount of shares made it unattractive to many Kiwi.
Innovative Kiwi platforms like Hatch and Sharesies have made it easier to invest directly in companies, but it’s still over to you to pick which ones – and that isn’t always easy!
That’s where managed funds come in.
Investments chosen for you from just $100
At Kiwi Wealth, even a $100 investment sees your money spread across a wide range of company shares and other growth assets, cash and fixed interest investments (like government bonds), selected by our investment team.
So that’s not just a single investment for $100; it’s a whole investment portfolio!
No matter how big or small your investment, it’s important that your money is invested in a way that suits your investment goal, timeframe and attitude to risk. So it’s your decision whether you want it put into a Conservative Fund, a Balanced Fund or a Growth Fund. Whichever one you choose, your fund will be managed by our team of expert investors, making tough investment decisions so you don’t have to.
You're in control
Once your money is invested, your online account will show you how your investment is performing, so you can decide for yourself whether you want to add more money to your account.
Of course, no one is going to retire on their returns from a $100 investment! But at Kiwi Wealth we believe all New Zealanders should have the opportunity to become investors – so we think dipping a toe in the water is a smart move before taking the plunge.
Then, if you decide a managed fund makes sense for you, you can add to your investment by making lump sum contributions or set up regular automatic payments to make investing even easier.
