We're expanding first home mortgages to all our KiwiSaver members

05/05/2021
Simplicity already offers NZ's lowest floating rate first home mortgage, at 2.25%. Due to high demand, this has only been available to KiwiSaver members who'd been with Simplicity for at least one year. But our fast growth means we can now offer it to all KiwiSaver members buying their first home, with no wait time.
