Matchstiq's take on Kernel

Kernel's mission is to create a world where all Kiwis are wealthier, more financially literate, and good savings and investing behaviour is embedded for future generations.

The Market Opportunity Ahead for Kernel

Each year $1b of potential wealth creation is lost by Kiwis leaving their savings in cash and term deposits. Investing is perceived as either too risky, too time consuming or too expensive for most. Kernel provides a low-cost, diversified alternative, for those wanting to accelerate their savings.

Kernel offers a range of index investment funds designed to help grow their customers savings and have just released new investment platform, that allow them to execute that directly.

Diversity and Inclusion at Kernel

One of Kernel's core values is to think differently and they actively empower employees to express their individuality. They are proud to be members of the rainbow community during Pride Week and every other day of the year.
