The Auckland Centre for Financial Research, at AUT Business School, is hosting a one-day symposium focusing on the New Zealand Capital Market. In recent years, there have been increasing discussions and efforts to develop the New Zealand capital market into a vibrant and liquid market. Efforts have included the formation of the Capital Market Development Taskforce, the creation of the Financial Markets Authority, the enactment of a number of legislative changes to securities laws, the introduction of KiwiSaver and the recent proposal for the partial privatisation of State Owned Enterprises.

The Auckland Centre for Financial Research aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry in New Zealand, and to engage in interactions that will be mutually beneficial. The purpose of this symposium is to add to the discussion on the New Zealand Capital Markets by bringing together leading New Zealand practitioners, policymakers, and academics. The setup of this symposium is quite unique in New Zealand, where academics present their research, and are then discussed by an industry participant or policy maker.

Besides the keynote address from Tim Bennett, CEO of the NZX, there will be several presentations from academia and practice, and a panel discussion with Ms Sue Brown, Head of Primary Regulatory Operations of the Financial Markets Authority; Mr Rob Cameron, Executive Chairman of Cameron Partners and former Chairman of the NZ Capital Markets Development Taskforce; and Mr Simon Botherway, Former Head of FMA Establishment Board and former CIO of ANZ Wealth.
