Your fund choice.
Our Investor Resources allow you to find out how your fund is performing in several ways:
- Our monthly fund comparison which provides basic performance data for all our KiwiSaver funds
- Quarterly fund updates specifically for each fund, providing data on returns, fees and investment mix
- A broader overview with our annual reports, which provide information about changes to our funds and their membership
- You can also see a list of exactly which assets each fund is invested in with our Full Portfolio Holding statements.
Remember: The right KiwiSaver fund for you is one that suits your investment timeframe and whether you are ok with seeing the ups and downs. It's important to remember that the KiwiSaver fund that suits you best at one stage in your life may not be the best fit when your circumstances change. First home buyers and those approaching retirement should review their KiwiSaver fund choices at least once each year. Other KiwiSaver members should review their fund choices at least once every two years.
Other instances when you might need to review your fund choice include:
- Moving overseas
- Serious financial hardship
- Being diagnosed with a serious illness.
If you think one of these situations might apply to you, you can give us a call to discuss your options.

Things you should know.
1 The risk indicator for each fund is calculated based on the volatility of returns over five years ended 30 September 2022, which may not be a full investment cycle. In some cases, the risk indicator might differ if calculated using a longer timeframe. If the relevant 5-year period has had unusually low or high volatility, the risk indicator may provide a less reliable indication of a fund's potential future volatility. Additionally, as the Default Balanced Fund does not have a 5 year return history, its risk indicator is calculated using market index returns (rather than actual fund returns) for the 5 years ended 31 March 2022. This may also mean that fund’s risk indicator may provide a less reliable indication of its potential future volatility. See the Product Disclosure Statement for more information.
