With a strong focus on the changing landscape of the Australian finance industry, the 2018 AFIA Australian Finance Conference is an unmissable event for practitioners, executives and industry technicians throughout the sector.

Conference delegates will gain insights into the state of finance regulation, future trends and emerging directions of finance in Australia. Speakers will provide guests with relevant market updates, economic developments and the major transformations lending institutions face in today's disruptive landscape.

In bringing emphasis to the conference theme, Taking Charge of the Change, plenary sessions will centre on some of the transformative elements shaping the industry, such as:

• the age of digital disruption and the challenges businesses face when trying to implement change within the current regulatory framework
• the changing behaviours of millennials and how these behaviours will impact customer expectations and current institutional norms
• the new wave of regulation and codes likely to impact the finance industry
developments in cyber security and fraud management.

In addition to the above themes, guests will also have the opportunity to participate in breakout sessions that are tailored to their specific areas of business activity.
