From the June 2017 KiwiSaver provider survey

This fund

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.

Communications to members


Other services


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.
