How Kernel came about

Kernel was born out of frustration with the inefficiencies, lack of innovation and low level of financial literacy holding back the New Zealand financial industry, and ultimately Kiwi’s financial futures.

Throw in low interest rates along the way and savings accounts have stopped working as a way for Kiwis to grow their money.

Our mission

It's time for a new solution

Kiwis deserve better investment options to grow their long-term wealth. At Kernel, we offer just this.

Through our digital platform, world-class investment funds and quality financial resources, Kiwis now have an effective way to grow their savings over the long-term.

Our Passion

A wealthier future for all Kiwis

We’re passionate about creating a world where all Kiwis are wealthier, more financially literate, and good savings and investing behaviour is embedded for future generations.
