Overview

The AFR Banking & Wealth Summit is Australia’s premier forum for policy announcements from the Treasurer and industry regulators. The 2020 summit will also be an excellent opportunity to hear from key industry leaders during implementation stage of many of the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.

As we saw in 2019 restoring trust and consumer confidence is at the heart of every decision made by the industry. With a superb speaker line-up and discussion panels, the 2020 program will also look closely at the recommendations that have been implemented and the reforms taking place whilst open banking is rolled out in Australia.

How the industry embraces innovation and technology in the face of disruption will determine how the financial services industry reinvents itself to compete with new players and keep up with the digital economy.

Facilitated by the Australian Financial Review’s Editor in Chief, Michael Stutchbury, Senior Financial Services Reporter, James Eyers, and other financial reporters, this is the only event where you will hear from all the important industry stakeholders.
