Fishers tipped to catch Kiwi Wealth

Fisher Funds is reported to be the successful purchaser of KiwiWealth.

According to BusinessDesk Fisher Funds beat out Jarden in the race to acquire the funds management business originally established by Gareth Morgan.

It is the biggest KiwiSaver sale and adds to Fisher’s other purchases which include Huljich, TOWER and First NZ.

BusinessDesk says Fisher intends to fold the operation into its current operations.

Fisher Funds is majority-owned by the Taranaki Community Trust through the Toi Foundation, with Hong Kong-based global investor TA Associates as a 34% shareholder.

According to Morningstar Fisher is the fourth largest KiwiSaver provider with $6.945 billion in funds under management as at March 31. Kiwi Wealth was next with funds under management of $6.80 billion.
