This year the FSC is expecting 500-600 attendees to attend 46 sessions on the 21 and 22 September featuring a stellar line-up of speakers at The Cordis Hotel in Auckland.


Those in the financial services sector will join their peers along with politicians, regulators, chief economists, journalists and local and international experts to engage in two days of inspiring discussion and conversation about the future of the industry in New Zealand.

FSC CEO Richard Klipin says he is looking forward to meeting members and industry stakeholders face to face.


“The appetite for in-person engagement is huge, and our delegates are looking forward to connecting face-to-face for two days of inspiring sessions and actionable insights.”


“We pride ourselves on being the flagship conference for the financial services sector in New Zealand, and our impressive line-up of speakers for 2022 is a testament to the calibre of content and discussion that will be taking place. This is one that no one in the industry wants to miss.”
