WESTPAC KIWISAVER SCHEME
BT Funds Management (NZ) Limited
Conservative fund type
Here's what the provider says about this fund:
The Default Fund aims to provide stable returns over the short to medium term. The fund invests primarily in income assets but is required to have an allocation to growth assets of between 15% and 25%. Volatility is expected to be higher than the Cash Fund but lower than the Conservative Fund in the Westpac KiwiSaver Scheme.
The combined fees are how much you would have been charged for the year ended 31 March 2019 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 May 2019 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.
