Security and Tempo

Learn how we keep your money and data secure, and what you can do to ensure your Tempo account is safe.


Your money can only be sent to you

When you take money out it'll only ever go into the bank account you provided to us. There's no physical way for anybody to move money anywhere else. Your money can only go to you.

Investments held securely by a custodian

Investments made by our funds are not held within the app or by Tempo. Instead, they’re held by an independent company, Adminis. This reputable NZ company acts as a custodian of investments. They hold onto investments for the funds. Keeping them separate from Tempo itself. This means Tempo can’t use this money. Investments are held securely until you’re ready to cash in your funds.
