Kia Ora ,

I hope that 2020 has started off on a great note and that you have fun plans for what's hopefully another sunny long weekend.

It's been a busy January for us, looking at how we can further improve our advice screens and create some exciting new content to help us build trust. We've received great feedback on the 10 corporate presentations we've done so far, educating people on the benefits of KiwiSaver and how to make the most of it. I'd love to come visit your workplace too, let me know if we can set something up

For those of you that have generated a portfolio but not yet signed up, we will be sending out a short survey later this week trying to get to the bottom of what you thought about our tools - I'd really appreciate your response to this so that we can keep improving.

I'm really excited to launch our knowledge series on 20th February with the first one being on Passive Investing. More details about the event and registration here.

This month we have tried our hardest to put some details around selecting a KiwiSaver fund. In our short 1000 word article are atleast two university courses on finance. I'd love your feedback on how it reads for you, or any ideas on how we can better present this complex topic. 

If you like what you read below, please forward this to a friend or colleague - we'd love for them to come check out kōura too!

Warm Regards,

Rupert Signature

Market Updates - January 2020

Newsletter_marketupdates

It's been a month of two halves in January. The first half was characterised by improving global growth, largely driven by the signing of the elusive US/China trade pact. The second half has been all about the Coronavirus, with markets looking at how that might impact economic growth.

We've found some interesting analysis on the impact previous 'pandemics' have had on global markets. Fair to say we are happy we are passive investors and won't be trying to pick the bottom.

Understanding the Types of KiwiSaver funds

Newsletter_howmuchtoretire

You could contribute 6% of your salary and be in a default fund or you could contribute 3% and be in the right fund. Both decisions will get you about the same KiwiSaver balance at retirement. Which one would you choose?

Choosing the right type of KiwiSaver fund is one of the most critical decisions you will take for your retirement. Figuring out the right one though requires a deep dive into finance concepts that most of us don't have the patience for.

Our guide tries to simplify the choice for you.
