Is your KiwiSaver balance under $5k?

If you’ve got a low KiwiSaver balance of under $5,000, or a zero balance, JUNO offers some great benefits.

You may have a low balance if you’ve recently withdrawn some of your KiwiSaver money for your first home or for retirement. Or maybe you’re new to KiwiSaver and have just signed up.



Grow your KiwiSaver balance with ZERO fees

We know fees eat into your KiwiSaver balance, and this has a bigger effect if you don’t have much in your account to start with. There’s not only a financial effect – watching fees chip away at a small balance can be very discouraging. If you're just starting out with an investment habit, it could even make you decide to give up.

If you’ve just taken out all your money for your first home, having no fees on your new, lower balance can give you a head start and get you back on track for saving for that retirement.

At JUNO, we want New Zealanders to form good investment habits. So, we don’t charge any fees on balances under NZ$5,000 – it’s our commitment to helping everyday Kiwis create a better financial future through KiwiSaver. There are also no fees if you’re aged under 18

A typical KiwiSaver provider charges you an administration fee, a management fee and some even charge a performance fee too! If your KiwiSaver balance is $30,000, then the average fee is $377 a year*.

Our Fees

Are based on a monthly subscription, think Netflix and Spotify. We only charge you one, low, fixed monthly fee based on your balance.

The industry average for KiwiSaver funds management fees is 1.15% p.a. (according to Sorted FundFinder at 31 March 2019) and the overall industry average admin fee is $32 (according to Sorted FundFinder data as at 31 March 2019).

Pricing FAQs

Why do fees differ between KiwiSaver providers?

Fees always reduce your return, so there must be a good reason to pay higher fees. The best reason is that you’re regularly getting great returns. But you might also be happy to pay higher fees because you’re getting top service.

It’s important to find out what you’re paying and understand why you’re paying the fees you’re paying. It might be completely fair, or you may be getting ripped off!

Can I switch my existing KiwiSaver account to JUNO?

Yes. Switching to JUNO is an easy online process and should only take a couple of minutes.

Once you’ve completed the online application, we manage the process of transferring your KiwiSaver balance across to JUNO. This can take up to 35 days.

Make sure you know your IRD number and have a photo ID handy, such as your passport or driver’s licence.

How safe is my money with JUNO?

Your KiwiSaver investment will be looked after by experienced and qualified fund managers at Pie Funds Management. We’re a registered KiwiSaver provider helping to protect your savings and working hard to grow them.

However, the money is not physically at Pie Funds. It’s held by a custodian who makes the investments on instruction from Pie Funds.

Do I pay less if my balance decreases?

Yes, our fee structure means this can happen. Your fees are based on your balance and if it moves down – or, hopefully, up – enough, you’ll pay a lower or higher fee, if you enter a new fee range.

However, whatever your balance, the fee is low relative to that balance and low compared to what other KiwiSaver providers charge for the same balance.
