Supporting our community

AMP Wealth Management New Zealand

We recognise the vital role business needs to play to support our communities. That’s a key part of who we are and what we do.

Read on to learn about our key community partnerships and check out our Help Report to discover more ways we’re helping our clients, employees and communities to live meaningful lives.

The first financial services provider to adopt the Living Wage

In 2018 we became a Living Wage accredited business, the first financial services provider in New Zealand to do so.

The Living Wage commitment means that everyone working at AMP Wealth Management, direct or contracted, receives a wage above the minimum set by the Government (click here to learn the latest Living Wage).

This move was to ensure all employees receive a fair salary, which reflects the real cost of living in New Zealand, and is one example of our commitment to ensure quality outcomes for all those who rely on AMP and is in keeping in line with our market-leading employee benefit’s package, which includes 12% KiwiSaver employer contribution, free life, health and income protection insurance.

To encourage more businesses to pay fair day's wage for a fair day's work, we played a leading role in launching the Principal Partner Programme in 2020 to encourage even more businesses to sign up to the Living Wage.

Supporting our people through a year of adversity

Mental health charity Voices of Hope (VoH) is on a mission to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and decrease suicide rates in New Zealand.

Co-founded by Jazz Thornton and Genevieve Mora, VoH produce powerful video campaigns to support those who might be struggling with their mental health, including It’s Not Weak To Speak and The Kind Project.

The impacts of Covid-19 continue to cause stress and anxiety and impact the lives and wellbeing of many New Zealanders, including workers. We’re proud of the ways we responded to the crisis to do more to support the wellbeing of our people, which is why our Chief Client Officer Jeff Ruscoe was delighted to share our story with Genevieve Mora.

Helping combat period poverty

In 2019, we became a proud partner of Dignity, a social enterprise on a mission to provide access to sanitary items to all women in New Zealand.

Through our partnership, we provide free pads, pantyliners and tampons to our people, and through Dignity’s ‘buy one, give one’ model, we then give the equivalent number of products to women who can’t afford them and girls in schools who, in some cases, would not otherwise attend due to lack of access to sanitary items.

Volunteering in our communities

Our people volunteer their time to support a range of community organisations. Follow us on LinkedIn to learn about some of our recent volunteering activity, and other ways we’re helping to make a positive impact in our community.
