 “It will explore how the financial services sector, Government and regulators can come together to support all New Zealanders to grow their financial confidence and wellbeing.”  

As the flagship event for the financial services sector, the FSC Conference draws in leaders and experts from all spheres, and attendees can expect to mix and mingle with industry leaders, academics, young trailblazers, founders, chief economists, and many more over the three day programme.
