Governance and culture has been identified as one of our strategic priorities that will guide our work over the coming years.
We encourage boards to take the lead in embedding sound corporate governance practices that are appropriate for the size and scale of their organisation. Find out more about your role below.

We are seeking feedback on our KiwiSaver advice guidance note.
This guidance note is for providers advising on KiwiSaver products and will replace our 2012 Guidance Note: Sale and Distribution of KiwiSaver. We are replacing this guidance to recognise feedback that our 2012 approach resulted in some people not getting the help they needed, as firms saw it as risky to provide advice. This revised guidance is intended to change that situation, by encouraging advisers and financial firms to help people make good decisions about KiwiSaver.
