Join us at the Women in Finance Summit 2023 as we reshape the landscape of the Australian financial services industry by shattering the glass ceiling and supporting women in building thriving financial services businesses.
While there has been a significant decline in the gender pay gap since 2015, dropping from 37.5 per cent to 28.6 per cent, there is still work to be done. The financial services industry still has one of the highest pay gaps in Australia, second only to the construction industry.
Our inaugural Women in Finance Summit 2023 is here to spark discussion on the key issues facing women in the financial services sector and consider solutions to make it a more equitable industry.
Together, we aim to set a new precedent for the profession by learning from the experiences of Australian women who are leading the way and understanding how our collective influence can bring about lasting change in both societal and professional norms.

Our 2023 Adviser Innovation Summit focused on adaptation. Advisers have an increased duty of care to help clients navigate a volatile and unknown economy.
It also focused on economic evolution. With generational shifts in wealth management, and as customers enter new life stages, advisers must rethink the way they deliver advice to meet their customers’ unique needs.
In order to thrive in this new landscape, advice practices must look to revamp their business models to keep pace with an economy riddled with uncertainty and a lack of structure — and deliver cost-effective advice, boost efficiencies, and meet compliance requirements all the while.
It’s no secret that recent local and global events have placed greater pressure on responsible investing.
Consumer preferences continue to shift towards financial advice that has a greater consideration and an impactful incorporation of transparently sustainable, equitable, and environmentally progressive options.
Meeting the advice needs of your clients TODAY will serve to keep you better equipped to meet the needs of the clients of the future, many of whom will be Millennials that increasingly value sustainability, climate change, and gender parity.
