KiwiSaver equity for women: building long-term financial wellbeing

Retirement savings Gender equity Women economic conditions New Zealand

This report coincided with the 15-year review of KiwiSaver by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (NZ). The intent of the report was to assist policy-makers by deliberately exploring and providing opportunities to get more equitable settings in place.

The following actions for government, business and individuals would contribute to improving KiwiSaver outcomes for women:

  • Introduce legislation requiring gender pay gap reporting and pay transparency
  • Develop a policy for KiwiSaver contributions for parents caring for children, regardless of gender
  • Maintain a watching brief on international developments to ensure that New Zealand remains well-ranked for retirement savings
  • Partner with KiwiSaver providers to improve financial confidence and knowledge among women
