We’re proud to announce that we have won both the KiwiSaver Provider of the Year, and Outstanding Value KiwiSaver Award in the recently announced 2020 Canstar KiwiSaver Awards.

Jose George, Canstar NZ General Manager, said Milford has been a consistently high performer in Canstar’s annual analysis of KiwiSaver providers. “Milford is a standout KiwiSaver provider both in terms of returns and customer feedback. Its win of our inaugural KiwiSaver Provider of the Year Award is extremely well deserved and we congratulate the team for their success.”

Canstar research and analyse financial services and products across New Zealand and Australia. The Provider of the Year Award is decided based on a combination of value of the core fund categories (Conservative, Balanced & Growth), member satisfaction and quality of services. It was great to see Milford’s Conservative, Balanced and Active Growth Funds receive a 5-Star Rating and Milford score top marks in customer satisfaction of all eligible providers.

We work hard to continually improve our member experience and are so pleased to have received this fantastic feedback from our members. Over the past year we have continued to develop our regular market and fund commentaries, launched a smartphone App, added transaction functionality to our client portal, and introduced access to KiwiSaver Advisers as well as fully online Digital KiwiSaver Advice.

Of course, we will not be resting on our laurels. We will keep challenging ourselves to bring you consistently good fund returns and excellent client service. This includes some exciting new online tools to help you set and achieve your KiwiSaver goals.
