2019 LIXI Forum

2019 LIXI Forum

After the success of last year’s forum, this year’s event promises to be bigger and better with more participants and an even busier agenda.

It’s been a challenging year in the lending industry. If you’re keen to network with industry thought leaders and the LIXI community whilst hearing about the latest events and future trends, then this event is not to be missed.

The introduction of parallel sessions will better cater to varied interests, and we’ve scheduled the forum in a less congested part of the calendar for most participants. Additionally, in order to allow the participants the best opportunity to network, the AGM will be held at a later date.

Event Info

Lending Industry Updates

Regulatory and compliance demands continue to shape the lending industry. With the publication of the Royal Commission’s final report and ASIC’s consultation paper on responsible lending conduct occurring since the 2018 forum, there is a wide range of topics to draw from.

LIXI Updates

The level of automation possible with LIXI2 continues to excite the industry and the tools we’re sharing are lowering costs, increasing agility, and improving compliance. Hear about the latest standards, tools and updates from LIXI and those that are using them.


A crowd favourite, the opportunity to network with the LIXI community remains a highlight of the forum. The sharing of ideas with others that are facing similar challenges can lead to unexpected partnerships and opportunities.

Technical Workshops

Technical workshops will be run in the ‘LIXI Lounge’ in parallel with sessions in the Main Auditorium. Delegates with a technical focus can get some hands-on training to make the most of their attendance.
