Juno KiwiSaver Scheme

Defensive fund type

Here's what the provider says about this fund:

The Fund invests primarily in cash held on call or term deposit with New Zealand registered banks. It also invests in the Juno Balanced Fund, providing Juno KiwiSaver members with investments in global fixed interest, some equities and some additional cash exposure. Members would choose the Conservative Fund if they have a short investment horizon or low comfort with investing and want to achieve a better return than they could from choosing their own term deposits with a New Zealand bank.

From the May 2019 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.
