Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Performance - September 2021

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

Using the most recent returns from September 2021, we will examine Kiwi Wealth recent KiwiSaver Performance.

Kiwi Wealth Kiwisaver scheme is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated wealth and investment organisation with a strong track record of growth and innovation. They want to help Kiwis create better financial futures by understanding more about how they can grow their wealth - and their values lie at the heart of that. 

During September, the share market and Kiwi Wealth’s KiwiSaver Funds had a drop in returns. The reductions could be caused by Auckland still being in lockdown, and the market is settling down after last year's significant returns or another external factor. However, in November, Kiwi Wealth’s returns are now all positive, and investors in KiwiSaver shouldn’t worry as it's natural for the market to have ups and downs because it doesn't always indicate the long-term performance of these funds
