Booster KiwiSaver Performance - December 2021

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

Using the most recent returns and fund update reports from December 2021, we will examine Booster’s recent KiwiSaver Performance.

Booster KiwiSaver Scheme is one of the six default KiwiSaver providers. They are Kiwi owned and operated, offering 14 KiwiSaver funds ranging from a more conservative cash fund to a higher-risk growth fund. 

Bond markets continued to sell off as investors bet on aggressive hikes in interest rate. On the other hand, for New Zealand based investors, the volatility of the global share markets was offset by the NZ dollar falling. The NZ dollar depreciated against most major currencies, supporting the returns of assets that are free to move with exchange rates. As a result, there was a positive return of 3.2% for those assets.
