What types of funds does the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme offer?

Show more

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when you’re saving for your retirement so the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme has a number of different funds to suit each employee’s goals and aspirations.

Our funds are invested by an experienced team of investment professionals (fund managers) who aim to make your employees’ hard-earned money work hard for them.

Your employees will have options when it comes to investing their savings:

  1. The Lifesteps Investment Programme – where savings are automatically invested in funds to match a member’s age, watch our Lifesteps video to find out more.
  2. Members can personally select which fund or funds to invest in depending on their savings goals, how comfortable they are with taking investment risks, and what stage of life they’re at.
  3. A mix of both Lifesteps as well as a fund choice of their own.
