KiwiSaver For Retirement Planning
Choosing the Right Fund
Saving for your retirement is critical to enjoying a good life in your golden years. Used well, KiwiSaver is a great scheme that will provide New Zealanders with a real boost in later life.
When you save into a KiwiSaver fund, you're investing in assets that you assume will be there when you need them in the future. So it’s really important to make sure that you have selected a provider, and a funds scheme within that provider, that you are comfortable with.

and between them all there are 114 different products to choose from!
But not all KiwiSaver providers or products are created equal.
