We support Sorted Money Week
As part of our strategic vision to grow the financial confidence and wellbeing of New Zealanders, we have been using our Money and You consumer platform this week to support Sorted Money Week, with a series of blogs and videos.
Research launch: Investing in volatile times
Our latest research report, Money and You: Investing in volatile times, revealed changes in how New Zealanders are investing - and what they're investing in - since the publication of The Rise of the Digital Investor report last year.
Why Does Money Matter school competition
Entries are open until Friday 30 September for our school video competition, which challenges Kiwi kids to make a 3 minute video about good money habits for a chance to win part of $10,000 worth of prizes for their school.
Health insurance media release
As at 31 March 2022, 1.45 million Kiwis were covered by health insurance, and $1.51bn of claims were paid out in the last 12 months, an increase of 7.2% on the previous year. We encouraged all health insurance holders to actively assess their existing cover to ensure it makes sense for them and their families, and offered some top tips in our latest media release.
It Starts With Action Declaration to continue industry action on women's financial wellbeing
