Why Balanced? 

Pathfinder's Balanced Fund aims for steady returns. The investment style is what the name suggests – a balanced approach.  The Fund may suit if you have a medium or longer timeframe to invest, like 5+ years, or are not that comfortable with seeing dramatic ups and downs in your balance.

Kiwisaver Balanced  Fund Performance

Risk Level

This Fund is suited to an investor with a mid to high tolerance to risk and a minimum investment timeframe of 5+ years. 

The risk rating reflects how much the value of the Fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility). A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way. This risk indicator is not a guarantee of a fund’s future performance.  The Fund does not have a five-year history. The risk indicators were prepared using the relevant market index returns, when the fund was not in existence, and the funds returns since inception . As a result the risk indicators may provide a less reliable indicator of the potential future volatility of the Funds.
