Low entry fee (only 0.75%)

Our automated back office systems enable us to reduce your fees. You'll pay a 0.75% entry fee on all standard fund purchases, and only 0.50% if you've created a Regular Investor Plan.

Take control and manage your money

It's important you monitor your funds once you've made your purchase. Take control with RaboDirect. We provide you ongoing market commentary and performance reports enabling you to track your fund performance, your assets and your investment strategy.

Many quality funds to choose from

We've worked hard to bring you some of New Zealand's leading retail and wholesale funds. There's a wide range to choose from, including some funds that retail investors can only access directly via RaboDirect.

Want to invest regularly?

This is a great way for you to reduce the impact of market fluctuations by investing specific amounts into one or more funds on a regular basis. It's a simple plan (often referred to as 'dollar cost averaging') which can reduce the risks associated with making large one-off investments. Plus, once you've set it up you don't have to make single one-off investments.

Let RaboDirect do the paperwork for you

Managed funds require you to pay tax annually, unlike traditional deposit products where tax is paid monthly when interest is earned.

When you invest in managed funds with RaboDirect the tax is automatically deducted from your account at the end of the tax year or during the year when you sell units.

In addition to this, your statements and tax certificates are generated dynamically and stored historically for your convenience. So when it's time to arrange your finances you can instantly print the copies you need.

Reduced tax for 33% and 30% tax payers

All our managed funds are Portfolio Investment Entities which means your tax is capped at 28%. If you're looking for a low risk investment with tax capped at 28% we also have two Cash Funds available.
