Focus area

Proposed Income Insurance Scheme (NZ)

We are seeking member feedback on the proposed income insurance scheme, which would support workers with 80% of their income for up to seven months if they lose their job through no fault of their own. Like ACC, the scheme would be funded by levies on wages and salaries, with both workers and employers contributing. If you would like to provide feedback (written or over a call), please reach out

ASIC’s effectiveness and capability

The Financial Regulator Assessment Authority (FRAA) is working with Boston Consulting Group to conduct a survey of relevant external stakeholders about their experiences with ASIC.

The survey is a key input into the FRAA’s review of effectiveness and capability of ASIC. FRAA are looking across ASIC’s strategic prioritisation, surveillance and licensing functions.

Survey responses will be anonymous, unless you nominate to provide your organisation’s name. We collect some demographic information (e.g. relationship to ASIC), but will not report on any segments with less than five responses to ensure that no response is identifiable.

The survey will be open until 11 March 2022.
