Building a Sustainable Future: The Changing Role for the Financial Community

In times of constant change, Financial Services brands face an imperative to face the changing needs and expectations of consumers and businesses and take on completely new roles and responsibilities in the lives of their customers.  


RFI Global are happy to extend you an invitation to this in-person free thought-leadership event, exploring the New Role for the Financial Community. We will explore topics like Sustainability, Financial Wellbeing, Digital Innovation, Future of Property Lending, and the overall Economic Outlook for Australia. 


Australian Banking Innovation Summit (ABIS) has been running for 12 years, and has enjoyed a reputation as THE event for the Australian financial services community. After a pandemic-induced break in our in-person gatherings, we are so incredibly excited to bring to you what we think is our best event to date. 


We have a fantastic speaker lineup. All these experts are bringing never-before-seen content to you, exclusively.  The event will be an opportunity to connect with your peers and brush up on your networking skills, the carefully curated invitee list is including top 150 attendees from the Australian Financial sector. And this year, the event is FREE, thanks to our sponsors CoreLogic and Meta.
