FINSIA’s prestigious and highly regarded “The Regulators” will once again see APRA, ASIC, AUSTRAC and the RBA highlight their priorities for the coming year.
APRA Chair John Lonsdale, ASIC Chair Joseph Longo, RBA Deputy Governor Michele Bullock and AUSTRAC Deputy CEO Peter Soros will update their priorities for 2024 while reflecting on the ongoing economic challenges at our signature event.
FINSIA CEO and Managing Director Yasser El-Ansary F FIN said: “This really is the premier event for financial professionals, regulatory leaders, and policymakers - a not-to-be-missed opportunity for anyone in financial services.
“Not only do you get to hear the Regulators outlining their most important priorities for the coming year and the opportunity to ask the regulators your questions regarding the future of the finance industry.
“But you will be able to connect with many of the most senior representatives of the financial services sector, who will certainly be there at this prestigious, long-running event.
“Events like this are what FINSIA stands for - providing access to expert insights, promoting collaboration, and facilitating ongoing professional development in an ever-changing regulatory landscape.
“I believe it’s not only important for individual professionals but the financial services industry as a whole.”
