We get a lot of questions from clients about market volatility and its impact on their KiwiSaver investment balance. Our team is available to answer questions via phone, email or live chat, plus we have created some short videos to answer some of the common questions we get asked.

1. Should I stop contributing to KiwiSaver when markets are volatile? 

We know that is can be unsettling to see your KiwiSaver balance going up and down during periods of market volatility. In this video, Senior Wealth Management Adviser, Laura O’Reilly explains why it’s often best to sit tight, stay focused on your long-term goals and keep doing what you’re doing.


2. Should I move my money to a Conservative Fund

During times of market volatility, some of our clients ask if they should move into a more conservative fund. As KiwiSaver Specialist, Nefe Teare explains in this video, the short answer is no, not unless your financial goals or your investment timeframe have changed.


3. Why does my KiwiSaver balance go up and down?

A KiwiSaver fund isn’t a savings account, it’s an investment. And like all investments, it’s value can go up and down over time. KiwiSaver Specialist, Sarah Ratcliffe, explains more in this short video.
