Rebuilding trust

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

The Summit is Australia’s premier forum for policy announcements from the Treasurer and leading regulators, as well as the opportunity to hear from industry leaders on how they are responding to change. Transparency is key this year, as many of Australia’s most influential financial services organisations, thought-leaders and disruptors navigate regulation and digital change in order to truly serve their customers today and into the future.

The 2018 Banking and Wealth Summit Chief Executive line-up and the discussion panels (which are still a work in progress) will address how the industry is, and should respond to these challenges, and how they are reshaping their organisational structures to rebuild trust and anticipate the future.
