Is your KiwiSaver account working as hard as it should?

Even a small increase in your annual investment returns can make a big difference to the amount you could have at retirement. In many cases, this could mean thousands of dollars extra for your future. That’s why it’s worth checking your KiwiSaver provider’s long-term performance. Although it’s not a guarantee of the future, it does give you a sense of how skilled they are at growing your savings over time.

At Milford, we’ve produced excellent returns for our KiwiSaver members by combining our world-class investment expertise with an insatiable drive that keeps us constantly asking how we can do better.

And while investment returns are important, like you we have other things that are important to us. So, when you invest with Milford you can take comfort in knowing you’re also supporting the local community, you’re investing sustainably and you’re getting peace of mind because all Milford employees invest their own retirement savings in Milford’s Funds – right next to yours.
