The 2019 Conference took the theme of ‘Tomorrow, Today’, reflecting the rapidly changing environment that we work in, and reminding us that the work we do today determines the type of business we are tomorrow.

The theme is contextualised in a short video that seeks to identify some of the elements that will shape the future of our industry.

With around 28 exhibitors, 40 AFM member organisations and over 270 guests, this was our tenth and biggest ever conference, and an excellent opportunity to network and hear insights from thought leaders and experts from the financial services industry on the current and future positioning of the mutual sector. You can view highlights from the conference in the video clip below:
