With Hatch, Kiwi investors like you have access to global markets at your fingertips. Hatch is a digital investment platform that provides the tools, access and community to help Kiwis grow meaningful wealth. Hatch was founded in Wellington and launched by Kiwi Wealth (now Fisher Funds) in September 2018.

We are the retail arm of FNZ, another Wellington success story, which was founded in 2003 by today’s FNZ Group CEO Adrian Durham. FNZ is a leading global wealth management company, which provides backend technology that powers wealth building platforms like Hatch.

What markets does Hatch offer?

On Hatch, Kiwis can access the world's largest share markets by market cap, the NYSE and the Nasdaq. You can buy full company shares, fractional shares (owning a fraction of a share) and exchange traded funds (ETFs) in more than 5,800 of the world’s most well-known companies and more than 1,900+ index funds, like the S&P 500, and industry and megatrend-based ETFs listed on the US share markets.

Hatch was the first to give Kiwi investors access to buy fractions of a full share. This means investors can buy portions of companies they might not normally be able to afford (like Berkshire Hathaway Class A shares (BRK.A) which can cost more than half a million US dollars). 

At Hatch, we continue to provide transparent pricing - just 50c to buy and sell shares on Kids accounts - our LearnHub, free investing Getting Started course, and News centre with the latest share market news delivered direct to your inbox, and our lively investing community, the Hatch Investors Club.
