Research commissioned by Te Ara Ahunga Ora for the 2022 RRIP and undertaken by Ministry for Pacific Peoples found that better housing solutions and financial education are the key to improving the wellbeing of Pacific Peoples in retirement.

The RRIP recommendations reflect this research and are focused on developing stronger pathways to home ownership through structured financial capability programmes.

Financial institutions are also encouraged to actively consider a collective approach to borrowing – which will benefit Pacific families seeking intergenerational housing options.
