From the May 2019 KiwiSaver provider survey

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.

In general, it’s good to look at the longest possible time period when weighing returns. After all, with retirement savings, it’s the long game that counts.
