Managed Funds

Generate Managed Funds make investing simple and stress-free.

Managed Funds work in a similar way to KiwiSaver funds, but you get to control how much and how often you want to invest and when you want to take it out.

You only need $1,000 to get started, and from there our team of expert fund managers will actively manage your investment, making all the tough decisions about where and what to invest in.

Managed Funds are a great option to consider if you want to grow your savings over the long-term, as the returns are typically higher than those from traditional bank savings accounts or term deposits. However, it is important to remember that investments can go up and down from month to month. This is a normal part of investing and the higher the weighting to growth assets, the higher the volatility.

Our Managed Fund Options

We offer three Managed Funds with a range of risk profiles and potential returns.

Choosing the right fund for you

Your fund choice will depend on your investment timeline and your appetite for risk. Our Conservative Managed Fund is recommended if you are planning to stay invested for less than four years, as volatility is likely to be the lowest of the funds. At the other end of the risk/return scale, our Focused Growth Managed Fund may be a good choice if you’re planning to invest longer term because while volatility is likely to be the highest of the Funds, the long-term returns are also likely to be highest due to the highest weighting of growth assets.
