Our approach

We know that understanding how your money is invested is important to you. It's important to us too. That's why we consider environmental, social and governance risks when we assess investments across all of our core KiwiSaver and investment funds.
And, if you want to go one step further, you can invest in our socially responsible investment funds.

Our Socially Responsible Investment funds

Socially responsible investment (SRI) funds exclude investing in specific industries - like fossil fuels or nuclear weapons. Our SRI funds have 15 exclusions.

We offer different types of investment funds so you can invest in a fund that's right for you.
