ARCA Executive Breakfast Announcement - Bookings Now Open!


Our topic is ASIC’s recent credit card work and what it means for the evolution of responsible lending. Following on from the Royal Commission, regulators are fine-tuning their expectations regarding credit provider behaviour and it is great timing to provide industry insights into best practice for understanding and meeting their new requirements.


Our keynote speaker in Melbourne is Richard McMahon, Senior Manager, Deposit-Takers, Credit & Insurers, ASIC
Our keynote speaker in Sydney is Felicity Natoli, Group Senior Manager, Deposit-Takers, Credit & Insurers, ASIC

Key Insights addressed will include:

  • ASIC’s review of credit cards and how it has influenced CP 303
  • The ability of Open Banking to assist with meeting ASIC’s expectations
  • Recommendations on ‘problematic debt’, meeting ‘actual needs and use’ and balance transfers
  • What insights does REP 580 give into ASIC’s current regulatory approach?

Panel discussion:

A panel will then convene to discuss Challenges and opportunities for credit providers, including:
  • Product profitability implications
  • Have the current regulations failed, or have those being regulated failed to look after their customers?
  • At what point do the regulators move beyond the expectation that a CP uses the customer data that it ‘holds’, to using the data that it ‘can get’?
  • Implications for CCR uptake.
  • Consequences for the new regulatory approach for product design, governance, competition and profitability.
Panel participants include:
  • Richard McMahon, Senior Manager, ASIC
  • Chris Irwin, Head of Retail Credit Risk – Strategy, Scorecards & Policy, Group Risk, Bank of Queensland
  • Michael Hendricks, ME Bank
