Fact

If you’ve got a mortgage, you might be better off putting any extra cash into your repayments rather than investing it. Even small amounts can make a difference to the interest you’ll pay over the life of your home loan.

We can help

Once you’ve got a decent chunk saved, you should talk to a professional about how to start building an investment portfolio. You don’t have to manage this yourself — but a little bit of knowledge will help you make decisions and follow what your funds are doing.

Ways Kiwibank can help you invest:

  • Notice Saver is our flexible investment option. You can add money whenever you like, then just give us 32 or 90 days’ notice to withdraw some or all of your funds.
  • Term Deposits earn a fixed rate of interest for a fixed term. There are no fees unless you break the term, and rates tend to be higher than those for standard savings accounts.
  • With an Online Call account you can withdraw money anytime you like, but you'll earn bonus interest if you don’t make any withdrawals in the calendar month.

Talk to a Wealth Adviser

Our Wealth Advisers are Authorised Financial Advisers, and can help you figure out how to start investing. It’s free to go and see them — just make an appointment with your local adviser. They can help make sure your money’s in the right place, and working towards your long term plan. You don’t have to have tons of money saved to speak to an Adviser either – if you’ve started a savings habit and you’re interested in advice on anything from first homes to retirement, they can help.

Your journey to financial wellbeing and wealth doesn’t stop. As your financial situation becomes more comfortable, you’ll have more goals you’ll want to achieve and more to invest in the life you want.
