Labour & Greens $212M Kiwisaver destruction

Labour and the Greens have helped destroy $212M of mum and dad investors wealth overnight with one policy announcement.


Yesterday before the announcement shares in Contact Energy, which are held by many Kiwisavers and individual investors were trading at $5.75. By the close of trading they had shed 4.5%….$212.6 million in value.

It is economic vandalism like we have never seen before. 

Labour brought in Kiwisaver and now they seem intent on destroying the retirement savings of Kiwi workers.

Russel Norman and David Shearer should really be on bended knees asking for forgiveness.

Any Kiwi who has a Kiwisaver account that had invested in Contact Energy is now $212.6 million poorer for it.

The serious worry though is what will they seek to control next?
