The FSC has a long track record of constructive engagement in policy. It does this through several mechanisms, including:
appearances at select committees;
engaging in all key policy platforms via Government and regulators;
advocating to stop or amend poor policy choices such as the GST on KiwiSaver and managed funds and the NZIIS; and
advocating for major policy review and change.
“The lack of a coherent vision for the sector and for all New Zealanders is costing us dearly and leading to poorer outcomes for all Kiwis, along with missed opportunities for a key sector of the New Zealand economy,” said FSC CEO Richard Klipin.
“Our number one priority is to grow the financial confidence and wellbeing of New Zealanders.
“Today’s announcement is just the beginning, as we know that good, evidence-based, bipartisan policy leads to better outcomes for all New Zealanders. This is part of the key to unlocking the future prosperity and productivity in New Zealand.
“We look forward to engaging with all political parties in the leadup to the Election and with the incoming Government after 14 October.”
