The Financial Services Councils of Australia and New Zealand are delighted to announce the release of super early bird tickets for the first ever Trans-Tasman Strategic Leaders Summit, being held on 4-6 March 2024 in Auckland. 

Get a front row seat to the issues, people and insights that will be driving and influencing the Trans-Tasman finance sector. This is the best opportunity to understand policy direction and consumer trends in 2024, and will empower Australasian businesses to prepare for the future and build a better sector.

Richard Klipin, CEO of FSC New Zealand said: “The financial services sectors of both Aotearoa and Australia are excited to be hosting this program. Building on the strong bilateral ties between our two countries is one of the key areas of focus. 

“With this inaugural Summit we are looking to build a Trans-Tasman Financial Services dialogue, that shapes our common interests, and showcases the best thinking and innovation that helps to build a strong and cohesive community.” 

The Summit will span over two and a half days and will showcase all the key issues and opportunities facing the sector. 

Blake Briggs, CEO of the FSC Australia said: “The programme, tailored for senior financial services executives from both sides of the Tasman, will cover superannuation and Kiwisaver, funds management, insurance, and financial advice, and bring industry leaders together for a unique networking and thought-leadership experience,” Mr Briggs added.

Regulators, politicians, economists and senior industry leaders from across Asia-Pacific will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing leaders of financial services organisations in 2024. The event will feature keynote addresses, panel discussions and workshops, networking opportunities and a Gala Dinner.  

The Leaders Summit is being curated by industry participants to ensure delegates gain access, knowledge and practical insights into the shared issues facing industry leaders in our region. Topics will include the future of financial advice regulation, the impacts of climate change on investing, sustainable retirement solutions, insurance and the economic uncertainty in our region.  

Speaker announcements, including political, regulatory and industry leading insights, will be made in the lead up to the event. 

Partnership opportunities:

The Strategic Leaders Summit will also provide partnership opportunities for organisations to showcase the latest software, products and technical solutions to the financial services industry.
