Welcome to the 2018 National Conference


Welcome to the Financial Services Council (FSC) and Workplace Savings NZ (WSNZ) national conference. It is a year of ‘Shaping Futures’ as we start to shape the future of our sector.

Our sector is undergoing rapid change and transformation. We are experiencing:

  • significant growth in the investment and KiwiSaver sector
  • a flat insurance market with signifcant mergers and acquisition activity
  • an advice sector on the cusp of major regulatory change

The national conference is the event of the year for the financial services and retirement savings industry. This full two-day programme aims to inspire and ignite great leadership, challenge the industry’s thinking and build the resilience, motivation and knowledge we need to navigate change within the industry.

The conference is the showcase event of the year for the industry. It is a chance to:

  • Learn from the experts and your peers
  • Share in the collective expertise of our sector
  • Connect with your clients, colleagues, regulators and suppliers
  • Create lasting connections

Join us for the flagship event of the year; we look forward to seeing you in September.

The Financial Services Council and Workplace Savings NZ are proud to be supporting Voices of Hope with the annual national conference, Shaping Futures. Voices of Hope is a relatively new charity in New Zealand on a mission to provide hope for those struggling with mental health issues by promoting mental well-being, empowerment and recovery.  Voices of Hope was founded in 2014 by Genevieve Mora and Jazz Thornton. Both being mental illness survivors they felt the need to use their past experiences alongside their passion for creating content to provoke and bring change. They do this by creating videos that target mental illness issues as well as writing blog posts on different topics. Since the launch of Voices of Hope, their content has received both national and international recognition and has caught the attention of companies wanting to support their vision
