Australian Securitisation 2017

20-21 November 2017


This year’s Australian Securitisation conference once again attracted a record number of delegates as the local market approached the end of what has definitively been its most successful year since the financial crisis if not ever. 

The mood was positive but also reflective, as industry participants contemplate the progress made and turn their eyes to future innovation.

See the event report (PDF) by KangaNews for conference highlights.


   

In particular, the event agenda (PDF) devoted significant time to forward-looking insights including the role of big data and machine learning in future markets, the next generation of securitisers as fintech-based lenders start to come of age, and the prospects for a green mortgage product in Australian credit and funding markets.

Elsewhere, the role of international investors as a catalyst for market growth in 2017 was discussed in depth. Buyers in Asia, Europe and the US have been cornerstones of the industry in recent months, and the conference was able to offer delegates insights into the prospects for this demand from a raft of international participants.

With regulatory developments still very much a focus, the conference welcomed APRA’s chairman, Wayne Byres, for the first time. Regulatory engagement proved to be as high as ever, with particular focus on the role of nonbank lenders in Australia.

The 2017 conference also featured female representation on all panel sessions for the first time ever – and achievement the ASF is particularly proud of having striven to achieve it for several years.

The ASF thanks all those who attended Australian Securitisation 2017. In particular, we would like to thank existing and the growing group of new sponsors for their support. ANZ returned as gala dinner sponsor, while Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac Institutional Bank were gold sponsors.  

Finally, our thanks to our conference organiser, KangaNews – which has now worked on the event for four years and has helped achieve additional momentum in delegate numbers and engagement. The KangaNews team was heavily involved in developing the event agenda and working with sponsors, as well as making sure everything ran smoothly at the conference and following gala dinner.

Australian Securitisation 2016 

21-22 November 2016


The 2016 ASF annual conference attracted a record number of delegates to the Sydney Hilton, with nearly 750 registered and a busy venue throughout. The event came at a key moment for the local industry, as the years-long regulatory process finally approaches its end and market participants start to turn their attention to wider issues.

The agenda captured this mood, with the two best-attended sessions being the regulatory session – at which APRA’s Pat Brennan eloquently explained the regulator’s case and key industry figures discussed the consequences – and a roundtable of high-profile chief economists that opened day two of the conference.

Elsewhere, topics up for discussion were the future of the lending industry in Australia, buy-side engagement – on- and offshore – green securitisation and the first conference session hosted by the Women in Securitisation group. Also at the event, the ASF launched its Future Leaders & Young Professionals group as the industry aims to boost engagement with the market-shapers of the future.

The conference ended with the ASF’s annual gala dinner. The dinner quiz now seems to be a staple of the event with healthy competition between teams and a first-ever tiebreaker between three tied tables for top spot.

The ASF thanks all those who attended Australian Securitisation 2016. We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors for your commitment to making this event so successful, particularly ANZ as our gala dinner sponsor, and our gold sponsors, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac Institutional Bank.  

Finally, our thanks to our conference organiser, KangaNews. The KangaNews team was heavily involved in developing the event agenda and working with sponsors, as well as making sure everything ran smoothly at the conference and dinner.

Australian Securitisation 2015 

31 November - 1 December 2015


It was another successful Australian Securitisation conference for 2015. 

More than 700 securitisation professionals attended the Sydney Hilton on 30 November and 1 December. 


 
   

Keynotes from senior and vital stakeholders were well-received, cementing our conference’s reputation as the flagship securitisation conference for the Australasian market.  

APRA’s keynote on the new APS120 framework was of course the keynote to end all keynotes, with standing-room only as the industry waited with bated breath. APRA’s Pat Brennan acquitted the regulator extremely well, particularly in response to subsequent audience questions where he very helpfully gave further guidance and clarification on APRA’s position.

In keeping with prior years, global investors were among the biggest crowd-pleasers, providing their commercially valuable insights on not only their home markets and ours. 

The ASF thanks all those who attended Australian Securitisation 2015. We would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors for their commitment to making this event so successful.  As we continue to grow the conference, partnerships with our sponsors are vital to the success of this initiative. These generous contributions help make our vision a reality.
