We've taken our original programme, and thrown in out the window...

The FSF Recovery Conference has been freshly curated to help delegates navigate through the most up-to-date aspects of COVID-19's effects on the financial services sector, regulation, and the economy at large.

The competitively-priced conference will also tackle wider, ongoing issues relevant to the lending sector, and provide an opportunity for the sector to reconnect.


Why to attend an FSF conference:

Be inspired...

Recovery Conference delegates will hear valuable insight from industry leaders and regulators, and have the opportunity to contribute to thought-provoking discussions about how we can put our best foot forward for the economic recovery. Registration costs less than half the rate of similar conferences.

Gain professional development...

Stay ahead of the game by gaining meaningful knowledge targeted especially to your sector with highly-rated sessions and earn CPD points doing it.


Enjoy plenty of opportunities to build new relationships, reconnect with your sector peers, and engage with our speakers (including at the post-conference cocktail function).

Venue: The Cordis, Auckland
