The Financial Services Council (FSC) will hold its Outlook 2023 conference, an in-depth breakfast session, on Jan. 25 at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland.
The session will feature executives from the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) and economist Mark Lister (pictured above), head of private wealth research at Craigs Investment Partners. Financial advice industry professionals will have an opportunity to ask questions of experts, receive future-focused insights, and network with other professionals in the sector.
Lister will deliver an economic keynote speech for the upcoming year and beyond. After that, the FMA chief executive Samantha Barrass, director of banking and insurance conduct Clare Bolingford and director of investment management and acting director of capital markets Paul Gregory will give an update on the expansion of the FMA’s mandate, the results of its 2022 work, and its priorities for 2023.
In 2022, the FMA focused on financial advice licensing, climate-related disclosures, cyber resilience, KiwiSaver value for money and the wholesale investing sector.
The event will be conducted in-person, with tickets being sold in tables of 10. It will start at 7:30am, and a light breakfast will be served.
