Your money is different to other people’s money, and what you plan to do with your money is different.

The Summer KiwiSaver scheme has some key differences from other KiwiSaver schemes:

  • We are investment specialists – as part of Forsyth Barr, we have an over 80 year history in investment markets utilising world-class research. Our Investment Committee is chaired by Martin Hawes, a respected investment specialist.
  • We are active managers – this means we respond to market opportunities, rather than passively tracking an index that we can’t control.
  • We keep you informed – both about your money, and, more broadly, by sharing our knowledge of investment markets.
  • We enable you – we are focused on making it easy for you to make changes to your account. We provide you with access to a network of Authorised Financial Advisers who can help with any guidance you may need.
  • We have a clear, socially responsible investment framework – we will not invest in companies that in our view are directly involved in the manufacture of cluster munitions, nuclear explosive devices, anti-personnel mines, or tobacco, or the processing of whale meat.

Are you ready to join Summer? It's quick and easy, just have your IRD number and drivers licence or passport ready.
