Kiwis making Kiwis better off

Bringing you all the latest news, views and up-to-date info on KiwiSaver, retirement planning, finance and more.


When you invest in the Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme, your savings go towards your future – and New Zealand’s future. 

Do you feel proud of your KiwiSaver scheme provider?

That may seem like an unusual question – for most of us, having a KiwiSaver account is a means to an end; a way to achieve a better, more relaxing retirement. 

But not all KiwiSaver scheme providers are the same. 

Returns are important, but we think it’s also important to know what your KiwiSaver scheme provider stands for: what its values are, and where its loyalties lie. 

For example, New Zealand’s four biggest banks are all Australian owned. In 2017, the four Australian-owned banks generated nearly NZ$4.8 billion worth of net profit after tax from operating in New Zealand [1] - that’s a lot of money. 

But there is an alternative. 

We’re 100% Kiwi-owned (by the New Zealand Super Fund, the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) and New Zealand Post). 

Because of this, all our profits stay at home, in New Zealand. As well as being Kiwi-owned, we’re Kiwi-operated too. 

If you contact our customer services team for help, you’ll speak to someone in New Zealand. And if you need personalised advice, our team of in-house financial advisers are based right here in New Zealand, at various locations around the country. 

At Kiwi Wealth, our New Zealand-based investment managers focus on helping to protect your wealth, increasing the potential for growth, and deciding which investments could be good choices for Kiwi investors. 

Your money is being actively managed by experts who really understand investing.

Kiwis are already voting with their feet – we manage more than $5 billion in funds on behalf of New Zealanders and over 190,000 Kiwis now trust us to manage their KiwiSaver investment. 

Our growing number of investors is a hearty thumbs-up for what we’re doing here at Kiwi Wealth. 

We’re focused on helping to create better financial futures for our members. We’re Kiwis making Kiwis better off. 

And that’s a win-win for all of us.
