Global Forum on ‘Today versus Tomorrow’
Experts from 48 countries will be meeting in Auckland this week to discuss their challenges and successes in building financial capability across diverse and ageing populations.
The global symposium, held in New Zealand for the first time, is jointly hosted by the Commission for Financial Capability (CFFC) and the OECD.
The theme is “Today vs Tomorrow?” and will address the fin-tech revolution; culture and money, and behaviour change strategies that hope to shift today’s thinking and convince a generation who ‘want it now’ to save.
This week the OECD will also release the results of an international survey into financial literacy and inclusion, including findings from New Zealand.
Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell said: “Hosting the symposium here provides an incredible opportunity for New Zealanders to tap into the learnings from 48 other countries.
“It’s striking how similar the challenges are across so many cultures. We are all grappling with issues of what each generation owes the next, growing savings in a low interest environment, the role of fin-tech, and the challenges of pension reform.”
Around 330 delegates will be attending the two-day event.
