Periodic disclosure
The KiwiSaver (Periodic Disclosure) Regulations 2013 require all KiwiSaver providers to report their returns in a standard format, in annual and quarterly disclosure statements. The monthly returns in the table above and the returns in the graph below are prepared under the same methodology used to calculate the performance data in these disclosure statements. This information is not audited and may be updated.

GIPS performance
We continue to be the only KiwiSaver provider to also present returns compliant with GIPS (Global Investment Performance Standards). The GIPS compliant returns use a different methodology and may produce different results to the returns shown here. This means that GIPS returns are not directly comparable with returns in the disclosure statements produced under the Regulations by us or any other KiwiSaver scheme provider.

Investment portfolio performance against benchmark

This graph compares each investment portfolio's return to a relevant benchmark, after fees and tax at the top PIR. A benchmark is a standard against which the performance of your investments can be measured and is a useful tool for investors to judge whether or not their investment manager is adding value. Find out more information about our benchmarks.

The actual asset allocation of each investment portfolio may at times differ to the asset allocation for the relevant benchmark because we have an active investment management style. You can find the actual asset allocation for each investment portfolio in our periodic disclosure statements.

  • Past performance is no indicator of future performance. In other words the best performing KiwiSaver scheme this year may not be the best performing KiwiSaver scheme next year.
  • The value of your investment (including returns) can also decrease as well as increase.
  • No one guarantees the return of capital or income from the Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme or any Kiwi Wealth KiwiSaver Scheme investment portfolio.
