David Chaplin has done a new report into KiwiSaver, in his words:
"Many people have opinions on KiwiSaver today, very few possess the facts.
This report 'Six years on the road' by noted financial services journalist, David Chaplin, aims to add a little more information to the mix.
Based on a forensic examination of the annual reports and financial statements of 38 KiwiSaver schemes over the year to March 13, the study - which follows on from last year's 'Now we are five' publication - provides a detailed view of KiwiSaver trends across metrics including funds under management, membership, fees, returns and transfers between schemes.
This year, too, a new measurement compares schemes across the proportion of 'non contributing members', which became a regulatory reporting requirement for the first time over 2012/13 period.
The report is available free by download here."
