New Zealand, like most of the rest of world, is undergoing a demographic shift that will result in almost a quarter of our population being older than 60 within the next 30 years. Are we prepared?

Retirement Income Policy Review and you

The Retirement Income Policy Review terms of reference have been released by the Government, and a project manager for the review is appointed at the Commission for Financial Capability.

The Retirement Policy and Research Centre is holding a one-day public summit on Friday 26 April, at the University of Auckland Business School to examine some of the issues raised by the review, including the fiscal impact of ageing, the future shape of the age pension in New Zealand, KiwiSaver, intergenerational equity, the changing nature of work, the capacity of the health sector, the health of the financial sector, and lessons for New Zealand from international developments in finance and pensions.

In line with this Government’s emphasis on wellbeing and sustainability, the terms of reference stress that the review must assess "the effectiveness of current retirement policies for financially vulnerable and low-income groups, and recommendations for any policies that could improve their retirement outcomes".

Hear New Zealand experts on retirement income policy share their thinking on the issues set out in the Terms of Reference.

Among these are Diana Crossan, former Retirement Commissioner; Matthew Bell, Treasury; Judith Davey, Institute for Governance and Policy Studies; Richard Klipin, EO Financial Services Council; Len Cook, former Chief Statistician for New Zealand and the UK.

International speakers, including David Harris, MD TOR Financial Consulting Ltd; and Calvert Duffy, an Australian Governance, Risk and Compliance consultant, will comment on likely implications and possible lessons from overseas events including the Australian Royal Commissions.
