Advice

Account

Your adviser will open a secure account for you on Consilium Wrap.

Portfolio

Review your portfolio and authorise your details online (including fees).

Transfer

Once authorised, this will trigger an automatic transfer from your current KiwiSaver scheme. Non KiwiSaver cash deposits can also be made at this point.

What to expect in your statement of advice

The KiwiWRAP KiwiSaver Scheme requires all members (with the exclusion of eligible investors**) first to receive a personalised statement of advice from an accredited professional financial adviser before they can proceed to join the Scheme.

What this means is that your adviser will consider your specific needs when making a KiwiSaver recommendation.

The statement of advice document includes:

  • Consideration of your personal circumstances such as assets, liabilities and goals for retirement
  • How long you have before you need to access your KiwiSaver investment (your time horizon)
  • How much you can handle up and down movements in the value of your KiwiSaver investment (your risk tolerance)
  • Your adviser’s recommendations for you including the specific investments and the percentage of your money to invest in each, and a risk indicator that will allow you to compare your specific portfolio to other generic KiwiSaver products
  • Full details of the fee your adviser charges and the fees associated with the specific investments recommended
  • An area for you to approve the recommendations and instruct your adviser to proceed

** Eligible investors must still access the Scheme via Consilium-accredited advisers.

  • KiwiWRAP KiwiSaver Scheme is not available to all investors.

    To join the KiwiWRAP KiwiSaver Scheme, you must have a minimum initial balance of $50,000 to transfer in, and throughout the duration of your membership of the Scheme, you must continuously retain the services of a professional financial adviser who is accredited to advise on the Scheme by Consilium. Due to its design around choice, KiwiWRAP KiwiSaver Scheme is designed for investors at the top marginal tax rates.

    The Scheme is not a portfolio investment entity (PIE) therefore tax is charged at a flat rate of 28% and is not included in the investor’s personal tax return.

  • Yes.

    You can transfer your KiwiSaver investment balance to any other KiwiSaver provider at any time. You can also change advisers and stay within the Scheme, provided that your chosen replacement adviser is also Consilium-accredited for the Scheme. Refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for more details.
