Lifetime began in 2013 and after two years of international research and development, by Founder and Managing Director, Ralph Stewart. The Lifetime Income Fund was launched in 2015. We're now New Zealand's largest insured retirement income and annuity specialist, managing over $250 million of assets.
Our purpose is to help people enjoy their retirement with the security of an income for life
We're a proudly New Zealand owned company run by some of the most experienced professionals in the industry including: leading financial commentator and adviser, Martin Hawes; and former Retirement Commissioner, Dame Diana Crossan.
Lifetime is also fortunate to have benefit from the experience and wisdom of Sir Michael Cullen, Former Deputy Prime Minister, who played an extensive role in Lifetime as a Board Director for four years (2017 - 2020).
"As the population continues to age and KiwiSaver members move into retirement it is important they have reliable options to support their income throughout their retirement."
Sir Michael Cullen
