WHY KŌURA

A KiwiSaver plan that's perfect for you

5 million Kiwi’s shouldn’t be made to fit into just 3 KiwiSaver fund types. When a KiwiSaver fund isn’t right for you, it could end up being the most expensive mistake you ever make. kōura’s digital advice tool builds you a personalised KiwiSaver plan that’s perfect for you and your life plans.

Instead of making drastic changes to your KiwiSaver by switching funds at different stages of your life, kōura makes small, regular adjustments to your KiwiSaver investments to change your portfolio over time.

Glide path2x v5

The traditional approach is based on the recommended glide path for ANZ (New Zealand's largest KiwiSaver provider). Glide path is taken from ANZ website on 28/10/2021. 

WHY KŌURA

Lower fees, so you have more

kōura fees are almost half the industry average at 0.63%. For the average KiwiSaver member, that means over $50k more in your account when you retire! At kōura you get personalised KiwiSaver advice without the usual high cost.

If you’re under 18, we’ll waive our membership fee to help get you started on your savings journey.

WHY KŌURA

Sustainable and ethical investments you can feel good about

We all need to do our bit to ensure we live in a sustainable world. At kōura, we do that by ensuring we only invest in the things that we, and you, can be proud of.

We employ a two-step process for choosing investments, we avoid the nastiest industries in totality and then we only pick the most sustainable and ethical of the remaining companies based on extensive MSCI research.

WHY KŌURA

A proven investment strategy that grows your balance

kōura follows a proven passive investing strategy, just like other well-known investors such as NZ Super and Warren Buffet. It’s a tested strategy that’s proven to make you more money – and for the average KiwiSaver account, it would’ve made them thousands of dollars better off over the past few years.

If all KiwiSaver funds had followed kōura’s passive investment strategy, New Zealand would be billions of dollars richer!

WHY KŌURA

100% Kiwi owned & operated

Did you know that over 75% of the KiwiSaver industry is foreign-controlled? By our estimates, that’s over $350m in fees being sent offshore every year.

When’s the last time an Australian looked out for a Kiwi? It’s time to take back control of our money.

STANDING UP FOR KIWIS

Meet our Expert Team

Warren Couillault

Chairman

Warren is New Zealand's KiwiSaver guru. And when you're running a KiwiSaver company, it's pretty great to have him on board. Warren was a crucial member of the team that created the Fisher Funds KiwiSaver scheme in 2007 and the award-winning Generate KiwiSaver scheme in 2011.

Now the CEO of Hobson Wealth Partners, one of New Zealand's largest wealth managers and a key strategic partner for kōura, Warren is also the Chairman of kōura and sits on our Investment Committee. His role is to help steer the team, making sure they continue to deliver great financial outcomes for you.

Rupert Carlyon

Founder, Managing Director

Rupert has worked in financial service roles his entire career - starting at global investment bank UBS, where he had a slew of roles in London and Auckland.

Returning to New Zealand in 2014, Rupert was disappointed to see the KiwiSaver market had not moved on since he left. Seven years on, New Zealanders were still being given the same stock-standard, three-fund offering and he could see that KiwiSaver was not really working for everyone.
