When choosing your own Fund, it’s vital to think about how much time you have before you need your savings and how comfortable you are with the value of your savings going up and down in value. Generally, the longer you have until retirement the more growth assets you should hold to maximise the potential of your KiwiSaver account balance. But, if you are planning to buy your first home or nearing retirement in the next three years you should consider the Conservative Fund. You can also choose to split your savings into more than one Fund to give you as much flexibility as possible over your investment in the Scheme.
