Self-select with confidence

We’ll guide you through adding your own picks to your investment plan, and help you keep on top of your KiwiSaver portfolio as the value of your investments change over time.

Diversification made easy

You can allocate up to half of your investment plan to your own picks, to a max of 5% in each pick. These limits help to keep your investment plan diversified.
