The Hayne Royal Commission: Implications for the Australian Financial Sector

The Melbourne Money and Finance Conference (MMFC) has been conducted since the late 1980s. This unique conference series brings together invited academics, industry participants and regulators under the Chatham House rule to discuss specially prepared and selected papers on emerging matters of significance in the finance sector. The Australian Centre for Financial Studies (ACFS – now a part of Monash Business School) has been hosting the conference since the Centre was established in 2005.

The Conference is by invitation and limited to 70-80 attendees (room capacity). The invitation is premised on the expectation that attendees will actively participate in the discussion and interaction over the full day and a half program of the conference, which brings together leading thinkers from across the finance sector.

The past success of these conferences reflects: the quality of papers presented; discussion among conference participants (under Chatham House rules); and the networking and camaraderie amongst participants.

This year should be just as successful and well worth attending. Each of the presented papers is allocated 45 minutes, with 15 minutes for presenter, 5 minutes for lead discussant and 25 minutes for general discussion. Attendees are assumed to have read ALL the papers (each of maximum 3,000 words) prior to the conference. Discussants will be chosen from the list of attendees closer to the event.

The conference is generously sponsored by APRA and RBA.
