We want you to have your say and be heard! Your views are important to us so please join us at our Royal Commission Town Hall on 20th July in Melbourne.
Our panel includes:
Kevin Davis SF FIN, Professor of Finance - University of Melbourne

Nicholas Vamvakas SF FIN, Chief Executive Officer – Equipsuper
We will also provide an update on the key issues from the Royal Commission hearings relevant to conduct and competency as well as highlighting some key recommendations from FINSIA’s submission paper.
The industry has the opportunity to take responsibility for the current situation and provide a unified, rigorous and wholistic solution that will result in a robust financial services industry worthy of consumer trust.
FINSIA's recent Consumer Research clearly indicates that there is a real customer expectation and need for professionalisation across the banking industry and the time for action is now.
This is your opportunity to help shape our policy and content as members of FINSIA.
