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

Ten Year Government bonds, Investment or Insurance?

The last couple of weeks has been something of a rollercoaster ride for investors, with volatility spiking as the world and financial markets try to come to grips with COVID-19, and both the human and economic implications.

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%.
