Technology is having a profound impact on the world we inhabit and the way we live. Combined with strong human connections, it provides a real opportunity for financial advisors to shape the future of wealth management in Australia. Understanding the financial technology landscape is crucial because choices made today will determine future success.

The InvestTech conference is designed to help financial advisers learn about new technologies and how to incorporate them into their wealth management practice. Attendees will hear from industry leaders on how they’re responding to the demand for managed accounts, as well as from the fintech challengers who offer new capability, enhanced productivity, and lower pricing models.
