Review of Retirement Income Policy

Every three years the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income review their Retirement Income Policy.  An important part of that policy review is the consultation process with industry stakeholders.  The PAA is keen to continue to work with the Commission on promoting financial literacy for all New Zealanders, as well as advocate for the important and valuable role that a professional adviser can play in helping New Zealanders achieve their financial goals.

The PAA have completed their submission on this important topic for all New Zealanders, and a copy of this submission can be read HERE.

Focusing on the Future is the culmination of a year’s work and is a precursor to the final report that will be submitted to Government before the end of 2013. It contains 16 inter-dependent recommendations on ways to ensure a sustainable system of retirement income in New Zealand for the future. Focusing on the Future was released on the 9th October 2013 and can be read HERE.
