FSC24 Conference: Consumer Resilience & Prosperity
As part of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, we recognise the importance of supporting all New Zealanders.
This is represented by the threads depicting flexibility, resilience and that the many different communities globally, within New Zealand and the financial services sector are stronger together.
This theme is therefore about focusing on how we as an industry can support the consumers that need it the most, to help maintain resilience through this tougher economic cycle, yet look to future prosperity for all New Zealanders.

Building Consumer Confidence 2023
The theme of the Financial Services Council conference in 2023 was Building Consumer Confidence.
As part of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, we recognised the importance of supporting all New Zealanders.
This theme was therefore about focusing on how we as an industry could support those who need it most, in all regions of New Zealand and of all gender identities, sexual orientations, cultures, ethnicities, ages and backgrounds.
Growing Financial Confidence & Wellbeing in Aotearoa 2022
The FSC. Conference 2022 theme reflected the FSC. Vision to ‘Grow the Financial Confidence and Wellbeing of New Zealanders’.
Our 2022 theme built on those from previous conferences including ReGenerations, and acted as our guide as we continue our journey through uncertain pandemic and economic times.
We welcomed over 645 delegates, sponsors and speakers back in person to the FSC. Conference 2022 at The Cordis Hotel in Auckland over the 21 + 22 September 2022.
ReGenerations Conference 2021
Our 2021 conference 'ReGenerations' built on previous themes of Wellbeing, Sustainability and Guardianship. The Maori whakataukī (or proverb), He Waka Eke Noa, builds on these themes by highlighting the importance of recovery and going forward together in both good and trying times. With a literal translation 'We are all in this waka (canoe) together' this whakataukī centres in meaning around our whānau and community: being on the same journey, headed to the same destination and leaving no one behind.
The 2021 conference ran digitally over nine weeks with 16 sessions and two conference day sessions, with breakfast, main plenary and sundowner sessions.
With 148 speakers and over 37 sessions, the ReGenerations Digital Conference 2021 saw over 950 registrations with over 4000 session attendees.
