How Canstar rates eligible KiwiSaver funds
This year the Canstar team researched a total of 18 KiwiSaver providers, 22 Schemes and 124 funds, selecting just two winners for the Outstanding Value KiwiSaver Award.
Canstar’s research team compare the costs, features and performance of each Scheme’s Conservative, Balanced and Growth KiwiSaver funds. Importantly, as KiwiSaver is intended as a long-term investment, they don’t just look at short-term results, but focus on average returns over the past five years.
Performance – this covers annual returns, but it also looks at consistency of performance. This means how returns fluctuate year to year – whether they are consistent or vary wildly.
Features – the range of investment options offered by a KiwiSaver provider, the financial advice, tools and support provided, and ease of member access.
Price – the annual cost to members, including fees and total fund charges.
The Outstanding Value KiwiSaver Award is given to schemes that demonstrate outstanding value across all three Conservative, Balanced and Growth profiles.
