Our Investor Capability Strategy sets out our areas of focus for 2017 to 2020, and the main ways we target investors.
Our focus is on positively influencing the behaviour of all New Zealand investors in the following areas:
We target investors through a mix of influencing industry and talking directly to investors.
We survey consumers to understand current issues and consumer perceptions. Some of these surveys are conducted jointly with other agencies.
We also test key resources with an online panel of consumers. Feedback helps us ensure we are clearly communicating the steps a capable investor should take when considering a specific product or activity.
Our consumer advisory network helps us ensure consumer perspectives are considered and addressed in our investor capability strategy and initiatives, and in our broader regulatory activities.
Members include organisations that work with or represent the views of consumers. Investors are the consumers the FMA’s work most affects. However, because we regulate financial advisers, we also share information and seek feedback on issues that affect consumers of other financial products, such as insurance.
Current member organisations are:
