EVENTS HIGHLIGHTING THE COOPERATIVE AND MUTUAL SECTOR AND ITS MANY BENEFITS
Mutual Capital Leadership Symposium – 26 June
The Federal Parliament has just passed landmark legislation for member-owned businesses and mutuals. These are the first amendments to the Corporations Act for 18 years that relate to federally regulated mutuals such as customer-owned banks, mutual insurers and mutual companies limited by guarantee.
New legislation opens opportunities for mutual businesses to grow through access to investment capital.
Designed for treasury teams, senior executives, the investment community and industry practitioners, it brings together the key players who were involved in developing this new law with leaders from mutual sector businesses.
20 keynote speakers explain:
- what Mutual Capital Instruments are, and how they can be issued
- the new legal framework for mutual entities
- how this will impact your firm’s constitution
- opportunities and challenges for new wholesale and retail markets
- the impact on regulation from ASIC & APRA
