About us

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.

“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
