As banks start to boost their capital reserves, finance commentators are asking ‘Is the golden age of banking drawing to a close?’ At the Institute’s upcoming ‘Banking on Change’ seminar, leading regulators and banking and treasury specialists will discuss this issue and more.
Attend the ‘Banking on Change’ seminar on 16 September and hear leading regulators Wayne Byres (APRA) and Guy Debelle (RBA) explain some of the key drivers that are altering the domestic banking landscape and consider the implications of the current global low-interest rate environment.
Major bank Treasurer Paolo Tonucci (CBA) and Treasury specialist Gordon Allison (NAB) will discuss the changing rules of the game and how they intend to respond to the regulatory wave.
Leading industry lights Kelly Bayer Rosmarin (CBA) and Angat Sandhu (Oliver Wyman) will discuss how banking is transforming itself through technology and innovation.
Banking on Change Seminar – why you should attend
In keeping with the Actuaries Institute Council’s strategy to create pathways into emerging practice fields, this seminar is an important event for actuaries working in banking and for those that want to understand what professional opportunities exist in that sector. It provides Institute members the chance to meet and network with leading bankers and regulators to gain insights into issues that are driving change.
The Banking Practice Committee is also in the process of developing a Part III course in banking that ultimately will provide an expanded skill set for those actuaries that wish to enter mainstream banking.
Guy Debelle’s discussion of the implications of the current low-interest rate environment is of particular interest to actuaries given the complexities of setting appropriate discount rates.
