161 Elizabeth St, SYDNEY, 2000
FINSIA is pleased to host the prestigious and highly regarded “The Regulators” signature event, in which senior executives of the Reserve Bank of Australia, APRA, ASIC and AUSTRAC highlight their priorities for the coming year.
Our world has changed so much due to the impact of COVID19 on society and on our economy. Clearly the priorities of our regulators have had to change to help meet the challenges we now face.
There is of course the same demand and enormous interest from our members to understand the priorities and the perspectives of our regulators. We are delighted therefore that our Regulators at the most senior level have agreed to provide us with an update, given such significant change in circumstances.
Benefit from the opportunity to ask your specific questions regarding the future of the finance industry.
This is a not to be missed opportunity to connect with the best and most senior representatives of the banking and finance industry.
