The Credit Law Conference will return in its 27th annual outing, bringing together banks, credit unions, regulators, organisations, associations and market disruptors to discuss the future of credit and lending.

The themes this year will include; regulatory updates from ASIC, as well as a panel discussing the future of credit and lending from a regulatory perspective. This will then be responded to on the following day with another panel from the perspective of industry, collating representation from the Big Banks, Regional Banks, Credit Unions and Foreign Banks.

Both financial ombudsman services (FOS and CIO) will present in a session together, exploring outcomes to unsuitable lending.

With housing developing into an enormously pertinent issue across industries, one theme at this year’s conference will look deeper into home lending – including mortgage broker remuneration and the status and future of the home-loan industry for lenders and consumers.

There will also be a focus on regtech, credit, banking & insurance for SMEs, P2P lending, the future of credit advertising, accountability, responsible lending and culture.

In addition to these presentations and panels, Credit Law Conference will also provide two workshops on the morning of Day 1 (11th October 2017), covering compliance and responsible lending.

After 26 years, the Credit Law Conference has continually curated the most important issues, topics and challenges in the industry, delivered by an excellent speaker faculty. The 27th year of this event already looks to consolidate this trend and offer even more.

A must-attend for Law firms, Regulators, Banks, Credit Unions, NBFIs, P2P Lenders, Financial Services Ombudsmen, and Consumer lenders.
