2009 Finsia – MCFS Consumer Finance, Investment & Regulatory symposium and research workshop
The workshop will include presentations of selected academic, regulatory and policy centre working papersand an open forum discussion of possible future research agendas
The workshop is to follow the breakfast and morning symposium, both of which workshop participants will be encouraged to attend.
The breakfast keynote address will be by the Federal Minister for Superannuation and Corporate Law on the broad scope of proposed consumer credit protection amendments.
MCFS in conjunction with Finsia is organising the workshop with the objective of encouraging high quality research into topics of interest and value to policy-makers, lenders, advisors and individual consumer finance professionals; and identifying areas where Finsia and industry may be able to provide support for future research. The inaugural Consumer Finance symposium and research workshop was held in 2008 and provided a useful platform for academics, industry and policy makers to make a valuable and informative contribution in a variety of areas relating to consumer finance.
