Over 50% of Kiwis are in the wrong KiwiSaver fund, potentially costing them hundreds of thousands of dollars, reveals newcomer, kōura Warren Couillault and Rupert Carlyon have teamed up to launch a new, next generation KiwiSaver scheme. kōura offers a digital advice platform that will give all hard-working New Zealanders access to personalised and professional financial advice – something most people perceive to be out of reach - and something that a new KiwiSaver survey undertaken by kōura shows is desperately needed. The survey showed that over half of kiwis are in the wrong fund, and this wrong decision could... Read more

In the wake of the Royal Commission into the banks in Australia and the ongoing saga with the ANZ David Hisco dismissal in New Zealand, it has been nothing short of ‘open season’ on the domestic banks. Recent commentary has now turned its focus to topics such as the level of interest rates charged on credit cards. Kiwibank has front footed this recent issue to some degree, dropping its zero cash interest rate on their credit cards to 13.95% per annum from 22.95% and its gold purchase interest rate dropping to 13.95% per annum from 17.90%. We could argue whether... Read more

When looking offshore, governments have been prepared to commit to large quantities of fiscal stimulus in an attempt to stimulate growth and activity, quantitative easing or legislated growth for want of a better term. The theory being, government... Read more

Continuing to lower interest rates is a policy misstep

At the end of March, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand released their latest statement to the market expressing their view that ‘the more likely direction of our next official cash rate move is down.’ The market subsequently priced in two interest rate cuts from here and the major banks have since lowered mortgage rates. Whilst households may have breathed a sigh of relief as the cost of servicing debt goes lower, retirees and income dependent investors likely preferred to look the other way. The bigger question here is, does the state of the underlying New Zealand economy really warrant... Read more
