6 Sep 18 - The Financial Services Council has today released a new report, ‘Shaping Futures: Closing the KiwiSaver Gap’, which sends a clear message to government, industry and consumers that combined action is needed to close the KiwiSaver gap in New Zealand.
The report is based on three significant pieces of research commissioned by the FSC with responses from over 2,100 New Zealanders and carried out by Horizon Research –‘Generation KiwiSaver’, ‘Growing the KiwiSaver Pie’, and ‘Great Expectations – Retirement Realities for Older New Zealanders’.
On the eve of its national conference, the Financial Services Council (FSC) has launched a new set of standards and guidance for its members, the FSC Code of Conduct.
Developed over two years by FSC members, the Code of Conduct is designed to build the professionalism of the industry by reinforcing the need for good conduct and a strong consumer-focussed culture.
As a living code, FSC members will work to develop best practice and guidance for the Code’s nine standards, which fall into three core objectives covering ethical, communication and consumer outcomes.
