How the Kiwi Wealth Managed Funds work
What's a managed fund?
A managed fund pools money from a group of investors and invests that money into a range of assets (such as shares, bonds, and cash).
Multiple investment accounts
You can open multiple accounts to help you manage different goals – like a new home or a holiday.
Each account needs an initial $100 investment and you get to choose the fund you're invested in for each account.
Your investment account
Your investment is held in an investment account. You get to choose a fund that best suits your savings goals, investment timeframe and attitude to risk.
Risk and return
Each fund has a different level of risk which depends on the type of assets it invests in.
Generally, the more risk you take on, the greater the potential for returns on your money over the long-term. However, this means you'll have to put up with seeing your account balance experience more extreme ups and downs more frequently than if you were invested in a lower risk fund.
Set up regular payments
You can choose to make regular contributions of any amount that works for you.
Payments can be made weekly, fortnightly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, six-monthly or annually.
Get your kids started
If you want to invest for your children, you can either open an account in your name and earmark that money for them, or you can open an account in their name – in which case once they turn 18, they’ll call the shots.
Types of funds
Kiwi Wealth offers three managed funds: Conservative, Balanced and Growth. You can choose one (or a combination) that suits your goals, investment timeframe and attitude to risk.
Up to 20% in shares and other growth assets, with the remainder invested in cash and fixed interest assets.
The Conservative Fund is generally suitable for investors with a short-term investment timeframe of one to five years or for those who are risk averse and can tolerate the occasional decline in the value of their investment.
Up to 70% in shares and other growth assets, with the remainder in cash and fixed interest assets.
The Balanced Fund is generally suitable for investors with a medium-term investment timeframe of five to 10 years or those who have a moderate appetite for risk and tolerance for declines in the value of their investment.
Up to 100% in shares and other growth assets, with the remainder invested in cash and fixed interest assets.
The Growth Fund is generally suitable for investors with a long-term investment timeframe of more than 10 years and who has a greater tolerance for declines in the value of their investment.
