2020 National Conference to ‘crystal ball’ super in 2030

The superannuation landscape in 2030 will be the theme of the SMSF Association’s Thought Leadership Breakfast at the National Conference being held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre from 19-21 February 2020.

Association CEO John Maroney will be joined on the panel by Jeremy Cooper, Chairman, Retirement Income, at Challenger, and Michael Blomfield, CEO, at Investment Trends. Melinda Howes, General Manager – Superannuation at BT, will facilitate the event.

Maroney says: “It’s always a worthwhile experience to ‘crystal ball’ the future, especially in an industry such as superannuation where so often it seems change is the only constant.

“It will be particularly interesting to hear Jeremy’s views considering it will be a decade since he handed down his landmark report into superannuation. He will be in an ideal position to forecast future change from the vantage point of what has happened since his 2010 final report.

“Investment Trends have been at the forefront of research into the financial services industry, providing insights into market dynamics and industry trends, so Michael’s perspective on what the industry will look like in 2030 will also make for compelling listening.”

Other conference highlights include the specialist-only session, workshops that give members the opportunity to interact with speakers and their peers, as well as sessions about the latest changes to SMSF legislation and regulations, investment options, business practice and advice.

Maroney says the Early Bird offer to members closes on Friday (29 November). For further information and early bird registration, go to: https://www.smsfassociation.com/conference
