The Australian Financial Review is pleased to announce the third annual instalment of its flagship Banking and Wealth Summit, 5-6 April 2017 at the Sofitel Wentworth, Sydney. We are excited to try and feature real diversity of thought and challenging new perspectives alongside the key influencers and thought-leaders for which the event is known.

In the two years since its inception, the Summit has emerged as Australia’s premier forum for banking and wealth leaders, regulators, policymakers and stakeholder groups to debate the future of financial services – all underpinned by the dedicated, expert coverage of The Australian Financial Review. Our speaker faculty has boasted many of the biggest names in Australian banking and wealth, as well as some of the world’s most influential financial services thought-leaders and disruptors.

In 2017, our focus shifts from rule-making to genuine transformational change. The Australian financial services sector is highly stable and profitable – and therefore in a position to make deliberate and strategic choices. The 2017 Banking and Wealth Summit will explore the nature of these choices, and ask the key question: how should we be doing banking differently? We will feature those leaders who are embracing the call to change, making smart plays, and laying the groundwork for future prosperity. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Guy Debelle, Deputy Governor, RBA
  • Wayne Byres, Chair, APRA
  • Greg Medcraft, Chair, ASIC
  • Rod Sims, Chair, ACCC
