David Murray will speak about the importance of a strong financial system to a well-functioning economy.

Australia’s economy has special characteristics that define its financial flows with the rest of the world. Its financial system must be efficient and appropriately capitalised if it is to support economic growth and productivity improvement to enhance living standards.


Mr David Murray AO was most recently the inaugural Chairman of the Australian Government Future Fund Board of Guardians between 2006 and 2012.

Mr Murray previously was the Chief Executive Officer of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia between 1992 and 2005. In this time Mr Murray oversaw the transformation of Commonwealth Bank from a partly privatised bank to an integrated financial services company. He has previously served as a member of the Finance Sector Advisory Council and the APEC Business Advisory Council.

In 2001 he was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to Australian Society in banking and corporate governance and in 2007 he was made an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO) for his service to the finance sector both domestically and globally and service to the community.
