We specialise in investments, retirement savings and insurance. AMP has been a KiwiSaver Scheme provider since KiwiSaver started in 2007.
We have been appointed by the NZ Government as one of nine ‘default’ providers, and we must consistently meet the highest standards for our product and operational practices.
Last year (2019) the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme had returns ranging from 9.27% in the AMP Conservative Fund to 22.26% in the AMP Aggressive Fund after fees and before tax. Remembering that past performance doesn’t guarantee future performance.
As a member of the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme you pay a monthly member fee of $1.95 as well as management and administration fees, costs and expenses (which vary depending on the fund/s you choose). To see what this means for each fund, read more below.
• The first question you should ask yourself is: “When am I going to need my money?” For most of us KiwiSaver is a long game. The secret to grow your KiwiSaver balance is to be in the fund or funds with the provider that suits your needs.
• When it comes to choosing the fund or funds with a new KiwiSaver provider, take a look at the features that are offered to you. KiwiSaver members choose which type of fund or funds they put their money into. Some funds are considered higher risk, which generally means higher potential returns over time, but with more ups and downs along the way and a great possibility of a negative return. Others are considered lower risk, which typically deliver more consistent returns yet lower returns. it’s important to be in a fund with a provider that suits your needs.
• It’s more than just about the fees and returns. It’s also worth checking out the online tools, mobile apps, advice and regular communication updates you might get from a different KiwiSaver provider.
• Seeking financial advice is a great way to keep on top of your KiwiSaver savings plan, particularly if you are thinking about changing providers. By getting advice you will find out - how your plan is working (or not) for you, and make some suggested changes, if needed.
