Types of Summer KiwiSaver

Summer has four investment options, each actively managed and offering a different level of potential return and targeted to the needs of a different life stage.

The funds range from a Conservative Selection, to their higher risk Growth Selection. The funds contain varying mixes of assets, with cash and fixed-interest bonds (income assets) making up most of the conservative funds, and equities (growth assets) making up more of the growth option:

  • Conservative Selection

  • My Plan

The My Plan scheme allows you to create your own portfolio of investments by choosing any combination of Summer’s funds, which include: NZ Cash, NZ Fixed Interest, Global Fixed Interest, NZ Equities, Australian Equities, Listed Property, Global Equities, plus the Conservative, Balanced and Growth selections.
