BNZ KIWISAVER SCHEME
BNZ KIWISAVER CONSERVATIVE FUND
Conservative fund type
Here's what the provider says about this fund:
The Conservative Fund invests mostly in income assets, which generally have lower levels of risk with the potential for lower returns. It also has a modest allocation to growth assets, which generally have higher levels of risk and potential returns. It aims to achieve relatively stable returns over the short to medium term.
The combined fees are how much you would have been charged for the year ended 31 March 2021 on the average KiwiSaver balance.
All the averages you see are for this same type of fund, so you’re comparing apples with apples.

From the September 2021 KiwiSaver provider survey
We surveyed KiwiSaver providers on how many different ways they help their members with investment options, communicate with members, and the extra services they offer.
So this rating is more about the quantity than the quality of services.
Help with investment options
Communications to members
Here ‘help’ means things like online forms, tools, calculators and information on how to optimise your KiwiSaver.
More communication is not always better communication, but if the provider gives you options on how you like to be reached, that usually helps.
These extras include a range of additional services that are helpful.
