The Melbourne Money and Finance Conference series was established in the late 1980s and there have been 11 such conferences with the last held in 2006.

The aim of the Melbourne Money and Finance Conference series is to bring together academics, bank and business economists, finance practitioners and public sector professionals to promote informed discussion on financial and monetary issues.

It provides an excellent opportunity for meeting colleagues with similar interests but with possibly different perspectives reflecting their academic, business, or public policy backgrounds.

The papers presented at prior conferences have been published either as special issues of journals or in book form.

Sponsored by: ANZ, APRA, CBA, NAB abd RBA
