The 7th Annual Responsible Lending and Borrowing Summit returns to Sydney in 2023. A year of maturing real estate debt and high interest rates which will prove challenging for many.

Join us as we open dialogue on responsible lending and borrowing and the reforms shaping the industry whilst we hear from the regulators. Interest rate hikes and inflation being front and centre of the discussions.

Other topics on the agenda are the use of artificial intelligence in banking and finance, the greater digitisation of the industry and the future of credit online.

There are special rates available for consumer advocates, NFPs, start-ups and SMEs. See pricing section below for details.
