Switching your KiwiSaver - is now a good time?

02/02/2023
2022 was a turbulent year for investors. Globally, share markets fell by over 15%, while here in New Zealand KiwiSaver funds fell on average 6% to 10% over 12 months. The big question on everyone’s mind now is what will 2023 bring? Are things going to improve, will it be more of the same, or could it get worse? And what should I do?
