Details

Welcome to COBA 2018, the Customer Owned Banking Convention, the industry’s premier annual convention

As the industry meets this year, ‘The Challenge of Change’ is the theme for this year’s Convention. You will hear from speakers and see exhibitors whose experience in meeting such challenges can help the customer owned banking sector take advantage of this moment.
Our industry is changing like never before. The Royal Commission, a range of new regulatory proposals, and the fast pace of technological change is all contributing to an uncertain and complex world.

This is ‘The Challenge of Change’.
But change can also bring opportunity.
Customer owned banking continues to grow and is a competitive alternative for millions of Australians. Our sector’s assets continue to grow, driven by strong housing loan and deposit growth, which is outpacing the rest of the market.
There is no question banking competition is in the spotlight and our sector’s model and focus on customers position us well to take advantage of these tailwinds.
Coming together in Melbourne we will learn from each other and a diverse range of speakers who will make us think, challenge and inspire us to return to our businesses and find a way through ‘The Challenge of Change’.
