Lifetime Powers Productivity With Software Robotics
Feeling the growth pain of data management as our client base increased, just like many of you, Lifetime wanted to ensure that technology became our friend, not our foe in an increasingly system driven world. We take our client data seriously, understanding the trust our clients put in us to protect their information while also ensuring we keep quality, accessible records to ensure our advice and servicing meets their needs. In order to adopt best practice technology and solutions, Lifetime undertook a data management review this year.
We recently teamed up with Fuji Xerox to implement robotic process automation (RPA), as one of the methods currently being used to ensure our data integrity and delivery. Lucie Moloney-Geany, Lifetime Project Co-Ordinator spoke with Fuji Xerox about this project.

Market & Portfolio Update - April 2022
Global share markets continued their choppy start to 2022 during April.For New Zealand based investors, a fall in the NZ dollar played an important role in helping offset the volatility global share markets experienced. The NZ dollar fell against most major currencies supporting the returns of unhedged overseas assets (assets that are free to move with exchange rates). As a result, ‘unhedged’ overseas investments fell by only 1.8% for NZ based investors.
The KiwiSaver Gender Divide – Why are women saving less and what can be done to combat this?
Recent data shows that, on average, women have 20% less in their KiwiSavers than men. The gap being at its largest between men and women in their 40s and 50s. There are a few factors that come into play causing this divide and although it will take years to achieve equality, there are ways in which we can be proactive to help close the gap. As of August 2021, the gender pay gap is at 9.1% in New Zealand, a decrease of about 0.4% from 2020’s stats.
