  • Summit Schedule 2025

  • What does it take to “Be Bold” in Australia’s banking world?
    How can challenger banks deliver better services?
    How can Avenue Bank do different and scale?

  • Challengers need products that people understand (loans, mortgages, accounts) but to do things differently to get competitive advantage at scale (such as technology choices, distribution etc); what does this mean in practice? What are the challenges with innovation and partnerships?

  • Younger generations are significantly influencing societal shifts in attitudes and behaviours; finance is no exception. How can banks and fintechs harness key trends to stay relevant for tomorrow’s consumers?

  • Who will deliver the Super App? It may not be who we think!

    Technology enables different sectors to deliver financial services. Perspectives on who can deliver value to customers for financial services. Who ‘owns’ the super app in the mind of consumers, and who is making headway with the new approaches to the super app?

  • How data is driving innovation and solving real consumer use cases?

    How data and open banking are driving innovation in the finance sector:
    - How has customer and business data and open banking allowed innovation?
    - How has Bank data on bank products allowed innovation?
    - Future of open banking and what impact will it have?

  • FinTech Case Study: Exits/Liquidity events

    How Paytron and OFX managed the acquisition; how Self Wealth Founder created LIQUIDISE to help Founders

    In this panel session, Paytron set out how and why they exited the business to ASX listed OFX, what was involved and why it made sense for both parties. LIQUIDISE Founder discusses his journey with SelfWealth, lessons learned and how these motivated him to create LIQUIDISE to help Founders/ESOP holders to sell equity.

  • Funding the FinTech/Challenger banking Revolution

    This session brings the key backers of innovation to the table to discuss what matters to investors, as well as key trends in fintech investing, such as technology trends, and the latest on valuations, metrics and deal structures.

  • Topic & Speakers TBC

  • FinTech, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Financial Services

    Consumers are targeted with investment scams, dating scams and false billing scams, leaving them embarrassed and often financially compromised. How can FinTech combat scams and Identity Theft? From giving consumers an easy way to protect their credit reports to creating a secure digital identity, this panel explores how technology is helping financial services.
