In their own words

"The Conservative Fund is invested up to 20% in shares and other growth assets with the remainder invested in cash and fixed interest assets. Its objective is to exceed the returns you would receive from investing 85% of your funds in New Zealand fixed interest assets and cash and 15% in global shares through active asset allocation and active selection of shares and other growth assets fixed interest and cash assets. Kiwi Wealth is 100% Kiwi-owned and operated and our team is based right here in New Zealand. We're ultimately owned by the NZ Super Fund, ACC and NZ Post, so our profits stay in New Zealand too. We invest our members’ money in companies that meet our strict environmental, social and governance criteria. For example, we don’t invest in nuclear weapons, tobacco and whaling. Your money not only gets invested in New Zealand but across the globe too, helping to diversify your investment."
