Why CareSaver?

It’s called CareSaver because it’s KiwiSaver for Kiwis who care about the planet and its people. It’s also for Kiwis who care about investing wisely for their retirement.

Pathfinder has been managing investments ethically for nearly a decade and are a ‘conscious investor’ – conscious of getting the best possible returns, conscious of protecting the planet, and conscious of doing the right thing for people.

Pathfinder’s animal welfare policies are the strongest of any KiwiSaver provider. They exclude companies that test cosmetics on animals, and companies involved in factory farming, as well as fossil fuel companies (which contribute to biodiversity loss), companies involved in the more general exploitation of animals (such as circus or theme park activities), whaling and more.
