Useful Websites

These are investing related websites that I find useful and interesting.

Portfolio Tracking

Yahoo Finance

I use the Yahoo Finance app on my phone to keep track of the various shares I’ve invested in, or are watching. It features price charts, statistics, and news for shares from all around the world.

Sharesight

The major limitation of sites like Yahoo Finance is that they don’t track non-ETF funds, such as the Vanguard and AMP funds on InvestNow. That’s where Sharesight comes in. Sharesight allows you to track funds in addition to shares (and cryptocurrency!), but their real standout feature is automatic tracking of dividend income. Sharesight allows you to track up to 10 holdings for free.

Special Offer: Need to track more than 10 holdings? Subscribe to an annual plan using this link, and you’ll get 2 months free.

Discussion Forums

Sharetrader.co.nz

Sharetrader is another discussion forum for New Zealand share investors. I learnt a lot by reading the discussions on this site, as most members are knowledgeable and experienced investors.

Reddit – r/PersonalFinanceNZ

The subreddit Personal Finance New Zealand is another good place to discuss investing in NZ. You may even see me posting and commenting there once in a while.

Investment News

Interest.co.nz

Interest.co.nz is useful for comparing the interest rates of various savings products and term deposits at different banks. Apart from that, they post interesting news articles about money and the economy.

MortgageRates.co.nz

MortgageRates.co.nz has just been overhauled into a beautiful site containing the latest home loan rates, news, and some basic mortgage information.

John Ryder’s Global Newsletter

John Ryder produces a monthly economic and investment newsletter, which is packed full of news about the economy, sharemarkets, bond markets, commodities, interest rates, and more. Well worth reading, and it’s free to subscribe to!

CoinMarketCap

Government Services

Sorted

Sorted contains a huge amount of tools, guides, and articles relating to everything about money, from budgeting, saving, investing, to managing debt. Their KiwiSaver Fund Finder is one of their most useful tools. Sorted is provided by a government funded agency, the Commission for Financial Capability.

Financial Markets Authority

Doing research into whether an investment or financial provider is legit or not? The FMA website is a good place to start, as you can search to see whether your provider is licensed or not. Apart from that, they have a bunch of guides about investments as well as avoiding scams.

Miscellaneous

Brave Browser

brave browser

Brave is my main web browser and is rapidly becoming more and more popular. Brave automatically blocks ads and trackers, but you can opt-in to see occasional ads and be rewarded with cryptocurrency tokens. Download Brave through this link and you’ll also be supporting Money King NZ. Give it a go – I think you’ll be surprised at how many ads and trackers are out there on the web.
