    The Investor: Kiwisaver about to move into High Gear
     2 March 2013
    KiwiSaver – which has lurched around a few sharp bends in its short life – is about to shift up a gear. From April 1, the minimum employee and employer contributions will both rise from 2 to 3 per cent of pay.

    The Investor: Financial Misbehaviour Disappointing
    9 Feb 2013: Ironically, a survey on New Zealanders’ financial behaviour was released just days before Christmas – a time of much financial misbehaviour, when everyone’s saying, “I don’t care what it costs, I’ve just got to buy something for Uncle Fred.”... more
    The Investor: Let's Not Make Kiwisaver Compulsory
    26 Jan 2013: The words "compulsory" and "KiwiSaver" seem to be appearing more and more often in the same sentence. I don’t like it – but I seem to be in the minority.... more
    The Investor: Tricky Questions to Ponder on the Beach Walk
    15 Dec 2012: Summer holidays - a time to look beyond what’s happening in your life over the next week or so. How about the next 40 years?... more
    The Investor: Self-Insurance Eases the Pain
    1 Dec 2012: Have you ever thought, as you pay hundreds of dollars yet again for car or house insurance that you never claim on, that it would be better to bank the premiums and use that money if something went wrong?... more
    The Investor: Kiwisaver Thriving – Especially Among those in Twenties
    17 Nov 2012: KiwiSaver is thriving. Most people know by now that more than 2 million – over half the eligible people – are members. But a new report tells more. Far more people are now staying in the scheme after auto enrolment; many are switching from default schemes to something more suitable; and a full three quarters of New Zealanders in their early twenties are on board.... more
    The Investor: Kiwisaver's Flexibility is a plus – up to a Point
    3 Nov 2012: KiwiSaver is many things – mostly good. But I hadn’t thought of it as a type of insurance policy until recently, when I was talking to an authorized financial adviser in Christchurch.... more
    The Investor: Are Bonds Really all that Beautiful?
    20 Oct 2012: Bonds are beautiful. That's certainly the message when you look at a recent Reserve Bank list of returns on 11 different types of investments, including New Zealand, Australian and international shares, property, farms, bonds and cash.... more
    The Investor: Property beats shares – or does it?
    6 Oct 2012: At first it looked as if a recent article in the Reserve Bank Bulletin might help with the perennial question: Is it better to invest in property or shares? But no such luck!... more
    The Investor: Help Needed For Retirees To Live It Up A Bit
    22 Sep 2012: I'm disappointed. Retired people have been gaining access to their KiwiSaver money for several months now, but there's no emergence of good new products to help them manage their savings.... more
