The NZ Super Fund story

Created in 2001 after an extensive public and Parliamentary debate, the Fund is a way for New Zealand to save now in order to make future superannuation costs more affordable. It’s needed because New Zealand’s population is getting older.

We do not manage people’s private savings

The NZ Super Fund invests Government capital contributions, and the returns from those investments, to contribute to the Government's cost of paying superannuation entitlements in the future.

Note: Be aware some scammers claim to represent the NZ Super Fund, particularly through social media. We do not invest on behalf of private individuals and we will never contact individuals with investment opportunities.
