Media Release
ANZ acknowledges Diana Crossan, Retirement Commissioner

ANZ today acknowledged the enormous contribution made by Retirement Commissioner Diana Crossan to improving financial literacy for New Zealanders and helping them prepare for retirement.

Ms Crossan has announced she is standing down from her role in January 2013 after a decade of service to the Commission for Financial Literacy and Retirement Income.

John Body, MD ANZ Wealth and Private Banking, said the policy debate around retirement issues had moved on significantly during Ms Crossan's tenure as Commissioner.

“We are sad to hear that Diana is leaving her role. She will be remembered for raising awareness around the importance of financial literacy and helping New Zealanders prepare for their retirement.

"The issues she has raised are now at the heart of public policy debate on retirement. The work of the Commission has ensured that people are far more concerned about preparing for their retirement than they were a decade ago.

"Diana has been a consistent supporter of KiwiSaver and the founding principles of the scheme to help all New Zealanders build their own individual savings plans.

"ANZ is proud to have supported the Commissioner in her endeavours through the Financial Literacy Survey, and will continue to work with the Commission to ensure the focus around retirement savings and financial literacy remains at the forefront of the policy debate.

"We wish Diana the very best for the future."
