Banking Summit 2021

Hilton Sydney | Tuesday March 30, 2021
Shaping the recovery

Australia’s big banks have acted as the nation’s financial shock absorbers, and this Team Australia role successfully helped to limit business casualties, economic fallout and support bank customers. As we emerge from an unprecedented year banks, policy makers and regulators are resetting the conversation about the recovery.

We are delighted to invite you to join us in person at The Australian Financial Review Banking Summit, as we challenge Australia’s most influential banking leaders on how they are helping to shape the economy, shoring up their businesses, and accelerating the reinvention of core banking functions in order to remain competitive into the future.

In-person, virtual and enterprise passes available.

Required social distancing and hygiene protocols will be enforced to ensure the safety of all attendees.
