“The inaugural conference last year was a huge success and this year’s event is shaping up to be even better and bigger”, he said.

“There is so much going on in financial services currently and the Shaping Futures conference will provide an opportunity for professionals from across our industry to debate the big issues, hear from key stakeholders, and to celebrate excellence among their peers,” Klipin added.

Across the two days, attendees will be able to meet and hear from senior political leaders, important industry regulators including the FMA and the Reserve Bank, plus keynote speakers discussing how the future of the financial services industry is taking shape.

Both the Workplace Savings and the Financial Services Council Award winners will be revealed at the Gala Dinner on the first night.

“These awards showcase excellence in our industry and give the winners an opportunity to be recognised by their colleagues and peers,” said Klipin.

Three different workshop streams will be offered, for investment, insurance plus a consumer lens on behavioural issues around money and literacy to help New Zealanders make better financial choices.

“The Shaping Futures conference is a great opportunity for the FSC and Workplace Savings community to come together, gain world class insights, and challenge each other to shape their futures in the best possible way. 2017 was a sell-out and I know this year will be no different”, Klipin concluded.
