LifeStages KiwiSaver Performance - September 2021

  • Fabook Messenger Sharing Link

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

Lifestages is an operating division of Funds Administration New Zealand Limited, a subsidiary of SBS Bank, working with New Zealanders since 1869 and is a registered bank. In 2020 they managed over $1.2 billion for more than 20,000 New Zealanders through providing private wealth services, the Lifestages KiwiSaver Scheme and the Lifestages Investment Funds.

There were negative returns on many funds in September and October due to a slowing global economy, worsening supply chain, and the potential Evergrande bankruptcy in China dented investor sentiment. Despite this, there is a more positive outlook from October and November, with returns on track being positive with the ending of lockdown and the markets readjusting after Covid.
