Outstanding value sees ASB take out inaugural CanSaver Award

ASB has been recognised for its strong performance being named the winner of the inaugural 2018 Canstar Outstanding Value KiwiSaver Scheme of the year award.

ASB Group Investments, manager of the ASB KiwiSaver Scheme was chosen as the winner of the award which is given to the top performing scheme in the market across the Balanced, Conservative and Growth profiles.

ASB’s general manager of wealth Jonathan Beale says, “The Canstar endorsement reflects our focus on top investment performance, customer experience and our cost-effective approach.

“We’re genuinely delighted to be recognised for our hard work and commitment to be one step ahead of other KiwiSaver providers by being focused on low fees while delivering consistent top quartile investment performance. Our team spend every day striving to achieve great outcomes, helping our customers to progress financially in life and achieve their investment goals,” Beale says.

Along with the honour of the inaugural 2018 Canstar Outstanding Value KiwiSaver Scheme of the year award, ASB has received more Canstar accolades.

ASB’s Growth, Balanced and NZ Cash Funds have each been recognised with a Canstar 5-star rating, while the Conservative and Moderate Funds have been recognised with a Canstar 4-star rating.

“KiwiSaver is a complex product and at ASB we believe it’s important to make it easy for our customers to make the right decisions about saving for their first home or retirement. A major focus for us is on providing guidance and advice but it’s also providing a digital experience to suit our customers, for example we’ve invested in our mobile functionality which allows customers to easily change funds, check their balance or add money how and when they want to digitally.

“This recognition by Canstar acknowledges our team’s commitment to our customers and is testament to the capability of the team at ASB. We’re extremely proud and pleased that our customers are benefiting from ASB KiwiSaver,” Beale says.
