Thematic Reviews

The Industry Insights and Thematics team was formed in April 2018 and is responsible for leading delivery of thematic reviews on risk, governance and compliance across the banking and insurance industries. The objective of thematic reviews is to assess risks to the industries that the RBNZ supervises and/or compliance with our regulations via both in-depth desktop analysis and on-site visits and interviews with financial institutions.

The output of these thematic reviews may result in:

  1. recommendations to industry to improve risk governance and management;
  2. input to future RBNZ policy development and reviews;
  3. more intensive supervisory engagement or action.
