Retirement and Investment

Retirement & Investment

At Aon Hewitt we recognise the importance of safeguarding individuals’ financial wellbeing as well as their physical wellbeing. As an employer, our Aon KiwiSaver Scheme and Aon Master Trust can help take the hassle out of supplying the benefits of KiwiSaver and Superannuation for your employees, letting you focus on your core business. Aon Hewitt’s investment consulting team supports a wide range of organisations with independent, tailored investment advice, while our actuarial experts can help you make better decisions to ensure your retirement programs are fair and sustainable.

Aon Master Trust

The Aon Master Trust takes the hassle out of superannuation for employers, letting you focus on your core business. Our service is tailored to your needs and helps you protect the benefits you offer your employees.

Our team can make your transition to a Master Trust straightforward, drawing on our experience of previously transitioning many complex schemes.

Employees receive

The Aon Master Trust has been around since 1979, with over 50 employers currently offering Aon Master Trust to their employees.
