With so many KiwiSaver schemes to choose from that’s a good question.
The 5 year returns shown are the average for each fund type per annum (p.a.) from sorted.org.nz Fundfinder 01/04/13 to 30/06/18 less 2% p.a. to adjust for inflation Defensive 2.17% (0.17%), Conservative 4.65% (2.65%), Balanced 6.84% (4.84%) and Growth 8.89% (6.89%) p.a. The ~5 year average returns are used for illustrative purposes only and during this time period there has been a bull market in equities so these returns may be higher than usual. Assumptions are that you remain contributing continuously until you reach retirement at age 65. Your salary or self-employed contributions are assumed to grow by 3% p.a. Your employer puts in 3% p.a. less tax. The graph above does not reflect the prospective performance of the Generate KiwiSaver Scheme or of any Fund. The returns are subject to investment and other risks (including potential losses). No returns are guaranteed or assured, and returns can at times be negative, particularly given the length of the investment period shown in the illustration. Past performance is not necessarily an indicator of future performance and returns over different periods may differ.
I thought Bevan was excellent and was very clear and thorough. I have recommended him to others!

I have been a Generate KiwiSaver Member for a while now and I have been impressed with the growth of my account despite not contributing to it at all! I will hopefully be able to contribute in the near future as I recently had a pay rise at work. Thank you for the service it's much appreciated.

Just thought I’d pass on that the Generate website is awesome! It gave me excellent visibility and transparency on where my KiwiSaver savings are at, allocation of value by asset class, transactions and more. Very happy with my choice of KiwiSaver provider!

I’m really happy with Generate… it was easy to join, your mobile website gives me an easy way to access my KiwiSaver information, I love how you keep me up-to-date with monthly newsletters, and I know you are always working to maximise and protect my savings.

Share markets are having a rough October - which has been a tricky month for investors historically. Readers of our newsletters will know we have been expecting a volatile year and have been positioned more defensively than usual as a result. We would like to remind our members that KiwiSaver is a long term investment and we would recommend staying the course through this volatility and not making any changes to their fund selection because of it. In the long term shares will outperform bonds - but at the end of the day the decision is yours. Here is an article from the last market drop in February that is still just as true today.View more
