First Home Buyer - Claire

Claire's current KiwiSaver Balance : $40,000

Claire is 30 years old and is looking to buy her first home within the next few years. She earns $70,000 per year and needs $75,000 from her KiwiSaver account to pay towards a first home deposit. She is contributing 10% from her salary and her employer contributes 3%.

To check if this fund is appropriate for her, we first need to calculate how long it will take Claire to reach her deposit goal and then compare that to how her current KiwiSaver fund invests her money.

How the CONSERVATIVE FUND invests Claire's money

  • 27.5% Growth Assets
  • 53% Income Assets
  • 19.5% Cash

This fund is a Moderate Fund. While in therory, Claire should be able to reach her goal within 3-4 years with a Moderate fund, it may or may not be appropriate for her.

Depending on how flexible her time frame is, she might decide to remain in Moderate or move to a more conservative fund.

But how do I decide which Fund is best for me?

As in Claire’s example above, it depends on a combination of factors such as how long it will take you to reach your goal, your current contribution rates, and the flexibility of your time frame.
