The information provided by the KiwiSaver fund finder is a guide only and is not intended as investment advice. We recommend that investors always seek professional advice.

The Commission for Financial Capability hopes Sorted's KiwiSaver fund finder will help you make well-informed decisions about how best to manage your finances and to plan for your future.

No warranty or liability

We make every effort to ensure that, at the time of publishing, the information provided by (and the workings of) the KiwiSaver fund finder are accurate and reliable. However, the tool uses data that KiwiSaver scheme providers have published and made publicly available as required by law. We use this data as-is, and cannot guarantee its accuracy or reliability.

Also, the assumptions in the KiwiSaver fund finder might not reflect or be relevant to your particular situation. If you’re not sure, ask an Authorised Financial Adviser.

Neither the Commission nor any of its employees make any express or implied representations or give any warranties regarding the material or facilities contained or referred to in the KiwiSaver fund finder, and we accept no liability for:

  • Any loss or damage whatsoever (including direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential loss) which may arise in any way out of the use of any of the material or facilities
  • Any errors in or omissions from the material or facilities
  • The accuracy of any information obtained through use of this site

We cannot guarantee that the tool will always be accessible or free from errors.

If (despite the disclaimers and exclusions above) we are held to have some liability to you for any reason, then our total liability to you in connection with the KiwiSaver fund finder tool will not exceed $50.

Changes to these terms and conditions

From time to time we may change these terms and conditions, including the terms in ‘Your privacy’ below, by publishing new terms and conditions on this page. We won’t need to give you separate notice of any change, and any change will take effect from the time it is first displayed until and unless it is changed again.

Web measurement tools

Our web measurement tools cannot identify the individuals using Sorted’s KiwiSaver fund finder. They are used to tell us how many people are using the tool and which pages are visited.

Cookies

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. Cookies are files that a website transfers to your computer for administrative purposes (for example, keeping track of the options that you select as you navigate through the KiwiSaver fund finder) so that the website can present you with information based on your selections. Our cookies do not identify you personally, but do identify your computer.

The KiwiSaver fund finder uses device-specific cookies to store those funds that you have placed on your watchlist. These cookies mean when you come back to the KiwiSaver fund finder on the same device, it knows which funds you have placed on your list. Cookies are also used in your current session to remember the sort order you selected, i.e. whether to sort KiwiSaver funds by fees, services or returns.

If you do not wish to receive cookies from the tool, you can set your browser to refuse them or to warn you when you are about to receive one. Please note that the KiwiSaver fund finder watchlist and sorting may not function properly if you disable cookies. If your computer does accept cookies from the website, our system may store information about your usage of the KiwiSaver fund finder tool.

Your email address is kept in a database that is managed by Signify and used in emails sent by the Commission for Financial Capability. We will not disclose your email address or share it with any other party.

Any personal information we collect from you in relation to the KiwiSaver fund finder will be subject to the Privacy Act 1993, including your rights to access and correct that information in accordance with Principle 6 and Principle 7 of that Act, as explained below.
