Consumer Borrowing and Covid-19 – How are Kiwi households weathering the crisis

We are excited to host a panel of consumer borrowing experts to discuss the Government relief packages alongside the Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act, and how both impact your personal and business clients.

Our team of experts include:

Cushla Scholfield  – Acting Associate General Counsel (Retail and Business Banking) ANZ Bank.  Cushla is an experienced senior lawyer with a demonstrated history of working in the banking industry, skilled in consumer credit law and plain language drafting

The speakers will give a big picture view of where we’re at with the consumer credit law reform package, options available in terms of Government relief packages and the perspective of both the consumer/small business and the retail bank when considering the financial implications of taking up these options.

Each panelist will discuss their views (approx. 10 minutes), and then we will open the floor for a Q & A for 10-20 minutes.
