The Financial Services Council represents investment and life insurance companies in New Zealand. We are the peak body representing the financial services sector in New Zealand with a focus on life insurance, KiwiSaver and investments. The FSC currently has 35 members comprising of 18 member companies and 17 associate members. Together, our members represent 95% of the life insurance market in New Zealand and manage funds of close to $50 billion. Our objective is to present strong, evidence-based arguments for the policies that we believe are in the interests of the country, rather than solely for the financial services sector.
