We share our KiwiSaver Policy Priorities

The FSC has been asked by the Government to collaborate on KiwiSaver policies to ensure KiwiSaver is fit for purpose for New Zealanders.

As a starting point, we have collaborated with our members to create a new FSC KiwiSaver Policy Priorities document which provides a framework for industry, employers, and the Government to work together.

Our initiative to help Kiwis grow their financial confidence and wellbeing.

Money and You is a resource for all New Zealanders with tips, insights and conversations designed to grow financial confidence and wellbeing. From getting a handle on your KiwiSaver to mental health and staying safe online, we cover it all.
