We’re talking about your future. The Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme can help you save for the retirement you want, starting right now: with a choice of funds, value for money, proven expertise and excellent support. 

1. See all your accounts online, in one place

With Westpac online banking, you can see your Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme account and other Westpac accounts in one place. Keep an eye on your savings progress, make contributions, and change the fund/s you're invested in.

2. Highest rating - Platinum

You can't get better than Platinum. That's the rating the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme has received from independent research provider SuperRatings* two years in a row.

Each multi-sector fund in the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme has also received a Silver rating in the Morningstar Analyst ratings**. Silver is the highest rating that’s been given to KiwiSaver funds by Morningstar in New Zealand in the multi-sector (diversified fund) category.

3. A choice of investment options 

You can invest in one or more of our six Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme investment options. Each one is designed to suit a different risk profile, and help you achieve your savings goals for retirement.

Our Risk Profiler can help you choose which of these might suit you best. Or, speak to one of our KiwiSaver specialists.
