For every KiwiSaver member who joins us, we donate 20% of our management fee to the charity of their choice. Check out how much we donated last year. We are expecting to more than double this in the year ahead.
Discover our charity partners and learn more about the terrific work they're doing to help protect our oceans, our children's nutrition, our forests and birds, the mental health of our children, fight climate change, and more.
These values guide our investment decisions. For instance, we avoid investing in companies whose business practices are inconsistent with the dignity of individuals or in companies who test products on animals. We also believe greater diversity improves decision making, so we invest in listed New Zealand companies that have at least one female board member.
Read more about how our values impact our investing in our ethical investing policy.
We rate potential investments on how well they score in categories like labour standards, community impact, ecological footprint, shareholder rights and anti-corruption.
We aspire for our investment decisions to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals; we want investments that are working towards one or more of these goals.
Pathfinder's KiwiSaver funds are not only carbon neutral, they're carbon negative.
A low carbon economy is central to our world view and investment objectives – we search for companies with lower carbon footprints or plans for transitioning to a lower carbon world and we raise awareness encouraging others to introduce them.
