mySTART INVESTMENT OPTIONS
A personal investment plan to reach your savings goals.
YOUR INVESTMENT OPTIONS
Craigs mySTART offers you a choice of investments with different risk characteristics. This means you can select from a range of funds, shares and other securities that best meet your risk profile and investment objectives.
Our investment options are recommended by our research team and Investment Committee, and with the help of your adviser you can build an investment portfolio that will help you meet short or long term savings goals.
Hannah* is 29, lives in Wellington and after leaving University, secured a professional job in her chosen career.
She joined mySTART at 21 years old when she was gifted $25,000. She wanted to either save toward a house deposit or fund part of her OE.
She met with her Craigs investment adviser and they created an investment plan. Hannah invested the $25,000 into a Growth Fund, meaning instant diversification and set up an ongoing automatic payment of $350 per month.
mySTART made investing easy for Hannah;
- She could contribute monthly toward her selected investments by automatic payment.
- She was able to buy partial shares; shares she might not have been able to afford if she was to invest on her own.
- The service provides diversification in her portfolio, meaning she has a broad range of investments from different markets and industries - which is prudent.
Before joining mySTART, Hannah was unfamiliar with the world of investing, but has become increasingly confident thanks to help from her adviser, full visibility of her portfolio on the Craigs Mobile App and investor education resources on the Craigs website.
