Topic: Applying Behavioural Finance in Principle

The standard economics assumption is human beings make rational decisions who have utilised their resources to obtain their goals. However, when it comes to investing, behavioural finance research finds human beings engage in shortcuts that can lead to a series of persistent, systematic biases when making decisions. Once you understand behavioural finance you will be able to understand the drivers of your clients’ decisions and be able to address them to obtain increased financial health, wealth and wellbeing for them.

Topic: Demographic change and the impact on the face of New Zealand

Our five million-strong population is riding a wave of unprecedented social change – from plummeting birth rates and a burgeoning number of older people to Auckland’s surge as an ethnically diverse supercity. This will impact on the goods and services that will be required in the future due to the changing cultural needs and the impacts of an aged population.

This session will provide you with a look at your future customer base and give you up-to-date information to allow you to assess what your business will need to look like in the future to be relevant in this changing world.

This year’s conference offers sponsors with opportunities to network and engage with over 16 different sponsorship options.
