Consumer Pulse Reports

Posted by Bruce Pitchers March 13th 2024

Here at Canstar, we canvass the opinions of many thousands of ordinary Kiwi consumers every year. It’s research that forms the basis of our banking, KiwiSaver and insurance awards, and also our Consumer Pulse reports.

Each Consumer Pulse report drills down into generations and genders to discuss some of our standout financial findings, and reveals a yearly snapshot of the nation’s financial wellbeing.

Each year, our Consumer Pulse report covers:

  • Financial pain points: Kiwi consumers’ money worries and debt levels
  • Piggy banks: savings habits and goals
  • Property: the state of the nation’s housing affordability and the aspirations of first home buyers
