Financial Sector Assessment Programme

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) undertook a Financial Sector Assessment Programme (FSAP) for New Zealand in 2016, with the findings and recommendations released in May 2017. An FSAP is a comprehensive review of a country’s financial system, with a particular focus on the quality of financial sector regulation. The previous New Zealand FSAP was conducted over 2003-04.

The 2016 New Zealand FSAP included a review of the Reserve Bank’s set of financial sector responsibilities, as well as an assessment of changes in New Zealand’s approach to securities and market conduct regulation.
