Our regulatory memo explaining the KiwiSaver scheme in New Zealand: what it is, its scope, how it works and the latest developments

Launched in 2007, KiwiSaver is a voluntary, work-based savings initiative to help New Zealanders with their long-term saving for retirement. It complements government superannuation. To date, over 2.7 million New Zealanders have invested approximately USD 29 billion into KiwiSaver.

KiwiSaver schemes are registered as managed investment schemes under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013, and are established in the form of unit trusts. There is some peripheral change on the horizon. The Financial Advisers Act 2008 (FAA), which governs industry participants who advise on KiwiSaver, is being replaced.
