Financial Services Council Deloitte Future Leaders Award 2013


Financial Services Council Deloitte Future Leaders Award 2013"If you’re passionate about taking the initiative and you’re up for the challenge you will reap the rewards."

Kim Cohen
BT Financial Group, 2012 program winner

In our eighth consecutive year and under the umbrella of the World Economic Forum’s 2013 theme of Dynamic Resilience we invite the financial services industry’s future leaders to take up the challenge of the Financial Services Council Deloitte Future Leaders Award.

The award program is all about encouraging future leaders in the wealth management industry to develop innovative research papers to shed fresh light on the industry’s key conundrums. In the process you will enhance your reputation and personal brand in your organisations and the industry. You will also benefit from the support and mentoring of senior management as well as networking with colleagues and previous candidates.

2013 hot topics

  • How can we improve the perception, customer experience and trust in the wealth management industry for Australians – whether in life insurance, superannuation, trustee services, financial advice or the industry  as a whole?

  • How can the global regulatory changes and requirements such as FATCA, Basel, Dodd Frank etc., deliver an opportunity for Australian businesses to prosper and grow? What role can Australian regulators play in facilitating this?

  • What existing policy settings could be changed, or new policies implemented, to better insulate Australia from the future economic impacts of an ageing population?

  • How can the Australian Wealth Management industry and/or Australian regulators embrace and better leverage the digital revolution?
