Compare Kiwisaver Providers

Look into the future and compare Kiwisaver providers

If you joined KiwiSaver through your employer, Inland Revenue would have signed you up to your employers’ chosen scheme (if they have one), or a default KiwiSaver Scheme. But, you are not required to stay with the automatic scheme. Taking the time to shop around for a scheme that suits your personal situation could add up to significantly more money in your retirement fund at the end of your working life.

Choosing a Kiwisaver provider with a good track record for customers satisfaction, and knowing whether your money will be invested ethically can also be important considerations. We have created a simple table to help you compare Kiwisaver provider customer satisfaction ratings, size, and investment exclusions.
