Global investment firm Nikko AM launches KiwiSaver Scheme

Global investment firm Nikko AM launches KiwiSaver Scheme

Nikko Asset Management New Zealand has launched a KiwiSaver Scheme, allowing Kiwis to now invest directly with the award-winning global firm.

The scheme offers eight separate funds, including specialist asset class funds focused on local and global shares, NZ cash and corporate bonds, as well as three multi-sector diversified funds, and the option fund.

“We have been managing portfolios for large institutional investors for many years and we’re now delighted to offer our capabilities to KiwiSaver members,” says George Carter, Managing Director, Nikko AM NZ.

“This enables individuals to access the same high level of service, quality and performance that the Nikko AM Group has built its global reputation on over the past 59 years.”

“As an added bonus, as part of our initial launch we will waive our management fees for the Nikko AM KiwiSaver Scheme until 31 March 2019, which makes for an exceptionally attractive offering in the market,” Carter says.

Nikko AM NZ – recently named Morningstar's NZ Fund Manager of the Year – has over NZ$5 billion under management and is part of a worldwide network of investment professionals.

With offices in nine countries, including the UK, US and Singapore, Nikko AM offers Kiwi investors access to offshore markets and expertise.

Headquartered in Tokyo, it believes the three core factors behind sustainable, responsible investing – environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) – are inherent to long-term value creation.
