Hatch: Your Access to the World

4 minute read

Eggs, seedlings, growth, and new beginnings. All of the imagery that comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘hatch’ is cliché. But, like most clichés, it also makes sense because investing is about growing your wealth, building up that nest egg, and preparing for the future.

When we decided to call Kiwi Wealth’s digital financial platform Hatch, we went to its original definition. A hatch is an opening that allows access. What a perfect fit: at Hatch we provide Kiwis with better, faster, and more affordable access to world-class financial tools and products. We’ll start by giving motivated investors access to investments listed on the US share markets, essentially putting the world at their fingertips.

Meet the people behind the product

We’re a team of people dedicated to revolutionising self-directed wealth building. From customer experience to coding, content, and design, the people who have built Hatch are all experts in our fields. Backed by Kiwi Wealth, Hatch is the first iteration of a beautifully designed digital financial platform.

Hatch is the result of several months of customer interviews where Kiwi investors told us again and again why they don’t invest in overseas share markets. They don’t invest overseas because they can’t to do so on their own terms.

With Hatch, this just isn’t a problem anymore.

You’re the ideal Hatch customer

Hatch customers are investors who want more. They demand and expect more, too. They’re experienced investors who want an engaging, educative, hands-on experience. They’re people like you who want to own a part of the companies, brands, and products they surround themselves with: from Amazon and Netflix, to Apple and Nike.

Most importantly, Hatch customers are prepared to do the research and take charge of their own financial education. They’re keen to learn as they go to be able to make better investment decisions themselves. They’re going to have to, because we’re not providing advice. Not one bit of it. However, we are providing them with the opportunity to invest and diversify a portion of their portfolios themselves by purchasing shares in over 2,700 of the world’s best-known companies. Sounds, exclusive, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. Hatch is the first of its kind to offer fractional investing in New Zealand, letting our customers buy a fraction of a company’s share they might not otherwise be able to afford. Global markets are on the menu. Investors can access these global markets by selecting from over 450 index, industry, and style-based ETFs from well-known asset managers like BlackRock and Vanguard.

You’ve heard of self-directed wealth building. Well, this is the best you’ve ever seen. Hatch provides you with information, opportunity, and access, putting the world at your fingertips.

We’re starting with investments, but we have bigger plans to change the landscape of finance in New Zealand. Hatch opens up a realm of new possibilities for investors looking to engage with their financial future. This is just the beginning.
