Optimising your KiwiSaver and the Light at the End of the Lockdown Tunnel.

As we approach what we hope is the final week of the full lockdown, I understand that many of you are facing uncertainty about your jobs and financial situations. I want to assure you that I am here to help, and I have important information regarding insurance options during these challenging times.

All the major insurers have announced some type of premium holiday, if you need it. Whether you are returning to work soon or still navigating job uncertainties, exploring these options can provide financial relief. Just email me, and we can schedule a time to discuss the available choices tailored to your needs.

Sometimes, having a reassuring voice during uncertain times can make a significant difference. I encourage you to reach out, even if your circumstances aren’t entirely clear yet. Your peace of mind is a priority, and I am committed to assisting you through these challenges.

On the good news side of things:

During the first 2 weeks of lockdown I dedicated much of my time to reassuring people that all is not lost with their KiwiSavers.  Many even realised that this period presented a unique opportunity to invest more!

I am pleased to share this advice was proven correct, and since the funds hit bottom on 23rd March most Growth type funds have rebounded around 17% in just 3 weeks. It’s crucial to remember your KiwiSaver funds go up and down in value all the time and that this is actually a good thing due to ‘Dollar Cost Averaging’ and my petrol prices analogy. Need some support? Get in touch!

Best wishes, 

Mike Bennett

In 1985, after 7 years in the banking industry in NZ & London, Mike Bennett joined the Life Insurance Industry as an adviser. In 2001 he started “Acorn Insurance & Investment Ltd” with the key principle; “to satisfy the insurance and investment needs of New Zealanders with the best products and service possible”. To achieve the guiding principle of “best products and service” the “Acorn” uses various industry research tools to identify the best products and prices to meet our client’s needs. Acorn has agencies with most of New Zealand’s major insurance companies which means we are free to use whichever products best meet our client’s needs. Believing that if we get it right for our clients we will achieve win-win solutions. We also recognise that nearly all insurance solutions are a compromise between the benefits you’d like to have versus the premiums you’re prepared to pay – with this in mind we WON’T be trying to sell you more insurance than you need or want !!
