About the Financial Markets Policy Team
The Financial Markets Policy Team works hard to ensure that financial products, like insurance and KiwiSaver, are improving New Zealanders' wellbeing. We provide advice to promote fair, efficient and transparent financial markets in New Zealand, and make sure that the rules prevent bad behaviour so businesses and consumers can benefit. We make sure New Zealanders are well informed so they have the confidence to invest, save and borrow to secure their financial wellbeing.
Some of our recent work has included developing a new framework to regulate the conduct of financial institutions like banks and insurers to ensure they are treating their customers fairly, and a review of the default KiwiSaver provider settings to benefit Kiwis who are members of these funds.
We are part of the Building, Resources and Markets group at MBIE which contributes to building a business environment where consumers are supported and businesses are empowered.
