INFINZ Awards 2010



INFINZ holds a number of events each year from monthly speakers to one day forums, to our premier events being the Awards Dinner and the annual conference.

All of our events provide networking opportunities, including the annual INFINZ Industry Awards black-tie Dinner at The Langham, attended by around 800 guests.

The Annual Conference is attended by over 400 delegates.

In additional some 20 breakfast/lunchtime/evening presentations are held, all attracting significant member discounts.

INFINZ publishes a Journal twice a year which is free to members and issues regular emails.



The INFINZ Mentoring Scheme has been established with the goal of developing younger or less experienced people in the industry, providing a new and interesting proposition to younger members, and to encourage new people to join to be part of the programme. This programme aligns with INFINZ mission to foster professional development and education of members within the New Zealand financial and capital markets. The inaugural mentoring programme was run in 2014 with ten mentor/mentee matches and was so successful that it was decided to offer mentoring as part of our annual YFP programme.


Below is an outline of the selection and appointment process.

  • A subcommittee of the INFINZ Board has been formed, tasked with running the mentor programme.  The committee consists of Louise Tong, Mark Edwards and Binaifer Behdin.
  • A panel of mentors has been put together, with representatives across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and covering a variety of sectors in the industry.
  • The programme is aimed at mentee applicants with at least 2 years work experience, and who are under 30 years ole.
  • INFINZ Sub-commitee to assess applicants and select up to 12 mentees, and match each to a mentor.  The aim of this process will be to find good matches, and also to foster cross-discipline learning across the industry subsets represented in the mentor group.
  • Mentors and mentees put in touch and interaction begins.
  • It is suggested that there be at least monthly contact between mentees and mentors, ideally face-to-face, with perhaps brief phone or email contact between those meetings.
  • Mentoring contact proposed to run from April to December.
  • Content or mentoring process should be left up to each mentor/mentee pair, based on the pairs' respective backgrounds and aspirations.
  • The sub-committee will review the programme at the end of the year with the mentors and mentees, with the aim of continually evolving and refining the programme over time.
  • Regular events are planned throughout the year involving the mentor programme participants, enabling networking and sharing of ideas.

We are very pleased to acknowledge the many organisations that sponsor our events. Their ongoing support is very much appreciated by the Board and Members of INFINZ.

All of the INFINZ events held over the course of each year offer sponsorship opportunities to business within the industry and to those who wish to gain the attention of the professionals within the industry.

INFINZ, can work with any interested parties to generate a portfolio of benefits from our events and can help potential sponsors identify how those benefits can deliver value to the sponsor, the people attending the events and INFINZ.

We aim to tailor each sponsorship to the needs of the sponsor and can tie together packages that incorporate events, website exposure and our biannual INFINZ Journal which is not only sent to all our members but also many other interested parties and which are displayed in the Air New Zealand Koru lounges in New Zealand and in Sydney.
