AMP continues digital approach with AMP KiwiSaver Scheme
online sign up


AMP has today launched an online sign up function for new AMP KiwiSaver Scheme customers to help them take ownership of their retirement savings.

Today’s announcement follows on from the launch of Quick Start Life a few weeks ago and is another part of the online offering for AMP.

Jeff Ruscoe, Chief Customer Officer, at AMP says: “This is another exciting development of our online offering and we’re making it easier for customers to join and manage their KiwiSaver.

“It’s a well-documented fact that Kiwis need to be better prepared for their retirement. By offering customers the ability to join a market-leading KiwiSaver scheme online and offering options such as the automatically adjusting Lifesteps investment programme, we want to make it as easy as possible for AMP customers to focus on what they want their retirement to be,” continues Ruscoe.

“Kiwis joining the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme understand that retiring on New Zealand Superannuation is not their only option and that maximising retirement savings is paramount to helping Kiwis live the retirement lifestyle they want.

“From 1 July we will be reducing the monthly member fee from $2.95 to $1.95 for all members across the entire AMP KiwiSaver Scheme, further helping customers reach their retirement goals. Along with other significant fee reductions in our Default Fund, this makes the AMP KiwiSaver Scheme a compelling offer for new and existing customers,” concludes Ruscoe.

AMP is the only default KiwiSaver provider that has both a 5 Star Canstar Award* and a ‘silver’ rating from Morningstar**, meaning that AMP KiwiSaver Scheme members can be assured that their KiwiSaver scheme offers outstanding value and is managed by one of the best teams in New Zealand.
