The RMA is pleased to bring you our second webinar for February hosted by Macquarie University – The BEARs bite… can you regulate accountability?

The BEAR – or Banking Executive Accountability Regime – is designed to make bankers behave better. How well does it work? Can you regulate executive accountability?

Don’t miss the first Macquarie University Finance Professionals Series webinar for 2021, where they will share their findings from a recent study that looks ‘under the hood’ of the BEAR.

The BEAR was born out of the community anger that led up to the Banking Royal Commission. Many wanted to stop executives from hiding behind ignorance and group decision-making processes and make them more accountable.

In this informative and interactive webinar, you will find out about:

  • What’s changed in the banks since the Royal Commission?
  • Are regulators able to get ‘heads on sticks’ and ultimately does that matter?
  • Are management practices changing as a result? If so, how?

The webinar will be chaired by Naomi Burley (Managing Director, GRC Institute) and will feature a 30 minute presentation on the report findings followed by an update from APRA.

PLEASE NOTE: This webinar is co-ordinated by Macquaire University.  Should you register for this event, your email address will be provided to Macquarie University in order for them to send you your unique Zoom URL to view this webinar.
