AIA NZ has a vision to make New Zealand one of the healthiest and best-protected nations in the world, and its commitment revolves around helping customers lead Healthier, Longer, Better Lives.  AIA NZ customers can also get AIA Vitality, a science-backed health and wellbeing programme that provides the guidance, tools, and rewards to get more out of life and start thriving. 

“At Financial Advice New Zealand, we are thrilled to welcome AIA NZ as our Platinum sponsor for the Thrive 2024 Conference,” said Katrina Shanks, CEO of Financial Advice New Zealand. “AIA’s commitment to enhancing the wellbeing of New Zealanders aligns perfectly with our mission to foster a thriving advice sector. Together, we will work towards promoting financial health and wellbeing for all New Zealanders.” 

Situated at the state-of-the-art Tākina Convention and Exhibition Centre in the heart of Wellington, this dynamic and interactive event will bring together insurance advisers, mortgage advisers, investment advisers, and financial planners from across New Zealand for an unforgettable experience. 

The 2024 Thrive Conference is the only industry event in New Zealand tailored specifically for the needs of finance advice professionals. It promises to be a gathering of forward-thinking professionals ready to embrace opportunities, explore the possibilities that lie ahead, navigate challenges and expand their horizons to develop a thriving mentality to succeed in today’s financial landscape.  

During the conference, delegates can visit the AIA NZ wellness space to unwind with amenities such as massage chairs, health checks, and herbal teas, offering a refreshing break from the event’s enriching content.
