In their own words

"The Fund invests solely in income assets (fixed interest, mortgages and cash). It is designed to have a low risk profile and to appeal to investors close to retirement (who consider they may not have enough time to ride out investment highs or lows) or are more risk averse. Here at Christian KiwiSaver Scheme, we’re about delivering great returns but we believe that how a return is made is important too. Our Scheme is built on universally accepted Christian values which underpin our ethical investment policy and shape how we manage your money. Under the policy, we are positive investors, informed first by a desire to support and encourage what is good in God’s eyes."
