The Australian Financial Review is pleased to announce the fourth annual instalment of its flagship Banking and Wealth Summit, 4-5 April 2018 at the Sofitel Wentworth, Sydney.

in the four 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 2018, 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 2018 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 (both established and emerging, Australian and international) who are embracing the call to change, making smart plays, and laying the groundwork for future prosperity.
