Responsible Lending and Borrowing Summit - Sydney

ROUNDTABLE | Useful data - is it a goldmine for some and land-mine for others?
Damir Cuca, CEO & Founder, Basiq
David Grafton, Consumer Credit Risk Adviser
Moderator: Andrea Beatty, Partner, Piper Alderman

The Responsible Lending & Borrowing Summit will be in its third year during a significant and an un-precedented year for financial services. With the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Service Industry Final Report due in February 2019, the summit will provide an opportunity to look closely at the royal commission’s recommendations whilst reflecting on lessons learnt.

2019 will sharpen focus towards better consumer outcomes and with the challenges ahead with open banking and comprehensive credit reporting implementation our financial institutions have one the toughest years ahead. With the level of scrutiny at an all-time high, greater digitisation and open banking will only further highlight the significance of trust for institutions.

The summit will provide a unique opportunity to reflect on the lessons learnt whilst creating necessary dialogue to pave the way towards better consumer outcomes.
