This data is compiled by Mindful Money from the fund information and portfolios that each KiwiSaver fund has filed with the Disclose register to Thu Sept. 30th 2021 and Mindful Money analysis of funds within those portfolios. The list of companies of concern has been drawn from ratings agencies and public sources, including the Norwegian Sovereign Fund, NZ Super Fund, Sustainalytics and research organisations.

Note that the fund’s exclusions policy may not be consistent with its portfolio holdings because the fund might be still implementing its policy change or their policy may be less stringent than the definitions applied by Mindful Money.

Note that many KiwiSaver funds exclude controversial weapons. However, the category of Weapons used in this analysis is broader in scope, covering all munitions, firearms and military weapons. Similarly Mindful Money uses a broader scope for fossil fuels than the government’s rules for default KiwiSaver funds. The full definitions used in the Mindful Money analysis are here.

In their own words

"SuperLife Age Steps automatically sets the proportion of your investment in income and growth assets based on your age. As you get older the proportion of your investment in more volatile growth assets will be reduced lowering the expected size of the ups and downs in the value of your investment. This option may be suitable if you are saving for retirement (assumed to be age 65) and assumes you will continue to invest your savings and spend them over your retirement period.Your SuperLife Age Steps - Age 40 investment will be allocated 20.8% to income assets and 79.2% to growth assets."
