At Booster we’re on a mission to build the financial resilience of New Zealanders. We’re a New Zealand-owned-and-operated financial services company based in Wellington.
We’ve been looking after Kiwis’ money since 1998.
Kia ora – we’re Booster.
Booster was founded by a handful of industry experts who felt there was a better way to help New Zealanders look after their money. We’ve grown a lot since then, but our mission is still the same. Whatever your financial goals, we want to help you achieve them - whether it’s helping you get started towards your savings goals, financial planning and advice, or growing an investment portfolio.
Backing New Zealand
We believe in backing our own. Backing innovative New Zealand businesses to help them grow and prosper, and backing everyday Kiwis who want to share in that success.
That’s why we created our specialist investment funds. They invest directly into Kiwi companies to help keep opportunities, profits and jobs here.
Reach your financial goals, make sense of your money and back New Zealand by investing with Booster.
For Kiwis and managed by Kiwis - Tahi invests in thriving homegrown businesses to stimulate growth, industry and long-term success in New Zealand.
Private Land & Property Fund
We created an opportunity that allows Kiwis to invest in the very land that is the backbone of Aotearoa and gives you access to your money when you need it.
“Every decision we make is guided by our fundamental values of honesty and purpose. These values hold us accountable as we ensure Kiwis are connected with their financial well-being, and we aspire to be Aotearoa’s most trusted financial partner.”
Allan Yeo | Booster Managing Director
We always knew that Aotearoa is pretty choice at creating innovative, leading-edge tech that no one else in the world has come up with yet – and now we have proof! We were proud to be connected to BIF companies, sharing in their success.
We were named as a Responsible Investment Leader in 2021 by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia.
Shift gears on your KiwiSaver account with Booster’s Geared Growth Fund – Winner of the Canstar Outstanding Value – Aggressive KiwiSaver Fund Award 2021.
Booster Innovation Fund (NZX: BIF) invests in early stage startups being developed right here in NZ. It's our way of supporting the next generation of innovative Kiwi startups.
We welcomed Otago Innovation Ltd to the NZ Innovation Booster partnership, investing in tech start-ups and research coming out of University of Otago.
We opened up access to our budgeting app, making it free for all New Zealanders – not just Booster members. We also gave it a new name – mybudgetpal.
We updated and refreshed mybooster, giving members an enhanced customer experience and improved account management, tools and resources.
We launched our SRI Moderate fund, completing our suite of socially responsible investment funds and giving our KiwiSaver members more choices to invest ethically.
We invested in two new research companies: Rekover Therapeutics (Multiple sclerosis drug research) and Inhibit Coatings (antimicrobial coatings).
A unique gravity-fed wine-making site, Mahana Estates is a significant addition to the Tahi portfolio.
We want to help our members make sense of money. So, we designed a money management tool, Budget builder (now called mybudgetpal), to help our members get a handle on their spending.
This achievement marks our ongoing commitment to help New Zealanders live financially secure lives.
We listed PLPF on the NXZ to open up access and offer more flexibility for retail investors.
PLPF is a specialised portfolio of unlisted New Zealand agricultural and horticultural land and other property investments.
Booster becomes the first accredited financial services provider with CoGo and awarded their new Responsible Investing badge - developed in conjunction with RIAA.
We formed a partnership with Wellington UniVentures (previously Viclink) to provide funding to commercialise world-leading innovations and breakthrough research coming out of Victoria University of Wellington.
We saw an opportunity to invest in successful New Zealand companies but couldn’t find an existing investment fund offering the long-term, yield focus and partnering approach that we wanted. So, we created our own.
We knew it was time for a change. We wanted to update how we presented ourselves in the market to better reflect who we are, and where we’re headed. Booster captures our energy and ethos.
We become the first KiwiSaver scheme provider to offer independently certified socially responsible investment funds. Our SRI funds are accredited by RIAA.
Our KiwiSaver scheme is making waves in the industry. So much so, we’re appointed by the New Zealand government as a default KiwiSaver scheme provider.
Set up by a group of experienced industry experts, Booster (or, back then, Grosvenor Financial Services Group) knew there was a better way to help New Zealanders to save. We wanted to offer something unique to what the international conglomerates were offering.
