New for 2019: FSC and LADUCA present the 2019
Claims and Underwriters Towards Wellbeing Conference Pathway


developed with LADUCA Auckland and Wellington

A warm welcome to Towards Wellbeing, the theme for the 2019 Financial Service Council and Workplace Savings NZ Conference on the 11 and 12 September 2019 in Auckland. The conference is fast earning the reputation as one of the flagship conferences of the Financial Services Sector in New Zealand, known for leading edge content and speakers and provoking debates around the key issues affecting the sector.

The Claims and Underwriting conference sessions have been closely developed with LADUCA to provide targeted and relevant content to those in the profession. There are many issues facing Claims and Underwriters from Genomics to Automation, and this one day specially curated pathway not only focusses on these big issues, but also gives delegates the opportunity to hear about the issues facing the financial services sector in New Zealand and globally.

The FSC and LADUCA has especially designed this programme for Claims and Underwriters to cover the major topics facing the Claims and Underwriting community in NZ. Watch the pathway welcome video from Chris Hutton, Deputy Chair of LADUCA Auckland.
