Looking to invest your KiwiSaver savings in funds that match your personal values? Here at Booster, you can invest your KiwiSaver money into one of our Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) funds.
And you can claim you’re helping to save the world. (Well, sort of. Just without the superhero cape and tights.)
An SRI investment fund is different because it actively excludes investments in socially controversial industries or businesses with damaging activities. Booster applies nine screening filters across our SRI funds, including weapons, fossil fuels and nuclear power production.
Booster has a range of different KiwiSaver investment funds to choose from, so you can choose a fund that matches your values and works for whatever stage of life you’re at now, and in the future.
We offer two Socially Responsible Investment funds - SRI Balanced or SRI Growth. All of our core funds follow responsible investing principles, however our SRI funds also exclude investments in specific industries.

Booster has always taken a responsible investment approach to our investments. And we’ve been doing so for more than 20 years. It’s not just a label to us. Booster’s SRI funds have been certified as Responsible Investment funds by RIAA and CoGo.
Booster's SRI funds have been certified by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) according to the strict operational and disclosure practices required under the Responsible Investment Certification Program.*
Booster’s SRI funds have been awarded the Responsible Investment badge by CoGo for applying specific exclusion criteria across its socially responsible investment funds.
“CoGo is all about connecting consumers with businesses that are invested in doing good; and as a financial services company, Booster is all about good investments.
We've created a new accreditation badge, 'Responsible Investment' to encourage consumers to invest ethically and put their money to good use. We're very excited to announce that Booster is the first business to receive this badge, and we're proud to be working with a business that invests in a better world.”
"Over the past 3-4 years, I’ve noticed an increase in people interested in investing in funds that are good for the planet as well as getting a good return. I really like Booster’s SRI funds – the exclusions cover key industries that people are concerned about – and our clients have peace of mind that they know where their funds are being invested.
Booster offers a range of tools that help my clients create their own wealth picture. For me, knowing that Booster is NZ owned and operated is very important. I’m confident that my clients can contact Booster directly and they will be looked after."
“It's important to me that my money is invested in a way that aligns with my personal values. Reducing environmental harm is a key factor for me, so knowing that Booster's SRI funds actively exclude investments in industries that can cause harm, such as fossil fuels, was paramount for me.
The accreditation of Booster's SRI funds also gives me confidence in my investment. I have the security of knowing that my money is being invested in funds that align with my values.”
