The Forum, co-hosted by the RPRC and the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Incomes, builds on the 2012 Forum: Spending the Savings. The Forum will bring together consumer and sector representatives, actuaries, academics and other experts to help progress policy development on the viability of various approaches to the decumulation of savings. The keynote speaker is Jeremy Cooper, Chairman of Retirement Income at ASX-listed Challenger Limited, a major annuity provider in Australia. The Forum supports the recommendation in the Retirement Commissioner’s 2013 Review of Retirement Incomes: Retirement Commissioner to convene a broadly representative review to determine viability of approaches to the voluntary annuitisation of savings, including KiwiSaver balances, on retirement.
