Pulotu Selio Solomon

Hi, my name is Pulotu Selio Solomon and I’m a Pathfinder KiwiSaver member.

Why KiwiSaver?

For me, with retirement coming, I want to have a good time when I get to that age. I was with a bank and there was no movement for several years – in terms of return on investment and growth.

When I switched to Pathfinder my returns exponentially grew. I could see the growth.

Why Ethical?

I’m a Pacific person, from Samoa, the son of migrants – climate change is affecting our people. Seeing what’s happening in the Pacific region – with flooding and whole settlements having to build further back from the sea - I wanted a KiwiSaver that wasn’t making that worse.

Why Pathfinder?

I was at a conference where I heard John Berry speak about KiwiSaver, Pathfinder and ethical investing. Until then I had no understanding of what ethical investing was.

Because of where we are in society, with what’s going on in the world, I thought ‘hang on, I want to switch to a provider who feels a social and moral obligation.’
I actually started to care about where my money is being invested. Now I’m ensuring my money is invested ethically.

Note: Pulotu Selio started out in our Growth KiwiSaver Fund and has since moved to our Conservative KiwiSaver Fund.
