Kiwi Wealth’s approach to investing does not rely heavily on timing the ups and downs of markets. Our objective is to:

  • Have diversified portfolios across a broad mix of investments, sectors, issuers, market characteristics, and classes
  • Reduce middleman cost by doing things in house - so clients have lower cost access to a global set of investments
  • Actively manage portfolios by selecting securities, assets, themes and strategies that have tended to outperform in the long-run
  • Mitigate some, but not all, of the bigger market sell-offs

The information provided, or any opinions expressed in this article, are of a general nature only and should not be construed, or relied on, as a recommendation to invest in a particular financial product or class of financial products. You should seek financial advice specific to your circumstances from an Authorised Financial Adviser before making any investment decisions.  No risk management strategies can eliminate investment risk.
