With so much change in the superannuation industry, you cannot afford to be out of the loop.

We’ve planned a full day’s super-specific program with leading industry speakers, presentations, and networking opportunities at the Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour to keep you up to speed with current superannuation trends and predictions. 

Whether you’re a trustee, a senior manager leading a large team, a compliance team member, working in advice, or in administration or marketing, this is a chance to gain a deeper understanding of the hot topics such as:

  • mergers, divestment and how these will impact the industry
  • how funds can better service members heading into the retirement phase
  • decarbonisation: the mitigation of greenhouse gases and the implications for investors
  • understanding leading from the front and ideal future operating models
  • improving outcomes for members - engage, educate and advise
  • an insider’s view of Canberra and the current political climate
  • the future of financial services technology
  • organisational and leadership purpose in a Post COVID world.
