KiwiSaver was introduced in 2007 to help New Zealanders save for their retirement – and Mercer’s KiwiSaver scheme has been one of the highest performing KiwiSaver default funds since KiwiSaver began. The Mercer KiwiSaver scheme was recently rated best “Value for Money” in SuperRatings’ 2018 KiwiSaver scheme assessment for the fourth year running.
