What we do

We build financial capability to equip the retirees of today and tomorrow. 

The Commission for Financial Capability is an autonomous crown entity (ACE). This means we report to the government, but the legislation ensures we have independence. We are government (and therefore taxpayer) funded. As an ACE we report formally on what we’re doing and how it’s working. You'll find those reports here.

Making decisions about what we focus on involves some healthy tensions, such as whether we're here for the retirees of today or tomorrow. The answer is – we are here for both.

Our children and our grandchildren will face some fierce new challenges in their retirement as the population ages and the world around them changes, and we need to equip them to be ready.
