The 2020 SMSF Association National Conference will open with a ‘crystal ball’ discussion of what the superannuation landscape will be like in 2030.
First up on the three-day conference schedule is a thought leadership breakfast, with Jeremy Cooper, Chairman of Retirement Income at Challenger, and who headed the Super System review; Michael Blomfield, CEO of Investment Trends; and SMSF Association CEO John Maroney.
Maroney said: “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.”
Also scheduled to speak at the conference are senior members of the ATO: James O’Halloran, ATO Deputy Commissioner for Superannuation, and Dana Fleming, ATO Assistant Commissioner for the SMSF Segment.
The 2020 SMSF Association National Conference is being held on the Gold Coast from 19-21 February 2020. Early bird registrations close Friday 29 November 2019.
