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 theme of the conference is selected annually and is aligned with the current issues affecting the financial services industry. The Conference is by invitation only, and limited to between 70 – 80 individuals (one third from academia, one third from industry, one third from regulatory bodies).

The standard format for the conference is that 11 or 12 papers of the specified theme are presented to and discussed by the audience. The conference is held in Melbourne and runs for 1.5 days with an optional welcome dinner on the preceding night and a conference dinner on the first night.

The success of this conference series can be attributed to the calibre of delegates attending and the quality of discussion among the delegates under the Chatham House rule. Through the open exchange of views and opinions from delegates of various backgrounds, many of whom are Australia’s foremost experts in finance,

MMFC has been successful in anticipating key developments in the Australian and global financial services sector, affecting public policy and academic research in the industry.

Papers presented at past conferences have been published in books and academic journals individually or together as a special conference edition. Annually, JASSA, Finsia’s quarterly Journal of Applied Finance publishes an issue devoted to papers from MMFC. Papers are also available online on the ACFS website.


The MMFC in 2019 is sponsored by APRA and the RBA.
