It doesn’t matter from what perspective you look at it, KiwiSaver has been an overwhelming success. $87b of retirement savings on behalf of over 3 million Kiwi’s and puts the country in a good place going forward, with retirees in a better position when they reach retirement.
As a KiwiSaver provider we take very seriously the role of being the best that we can be across a broad range of measures, whether it be client service, access to information, risk-adjusted investment returns or investing sustainably.
However being a good KiwiSaver provider and providing the best outcomes for our clients is not enough, we also want to give back to our community.
Milford’s common purpose is to grow the wealth of our clients and make a positive contribution to the community. We live by that and have been making philanthropic contributions to the community for many years.
We have taken this commitment to another level with the establishment of the Milford Foundation.
The Milford Foundation’s mission is to strengthen New Zealand communities through the lenses of youth, education and the environment. Through a combination of investment expertise, our generous donor community, a commitment to efficiency, effectiveness and transparency, and strong partnerships, we can – and will – make a meaningful impact for New Zealand’s future generations.
To introduce the Foundation, we’ve recently released the first issue of our Impact magazine. This detailed read gives you an insight into why we believe the Foundation is an important commitment to supporting our communities and giving back. Chief Executive Bryce Marsden summarises it well, “The Foundation’s success will ultimately be your success as we work to bridge this widening gap and initiate positive change”
By Investing with the Milford KiwiSaver Plan, you’re trusting your hard-earned funds to be managed by a provider who is not only committed to the very best outcomes for you, but also the very best outcomes for the communities of New Zealand as well.
