Tuesday 24th of November

11:00-11:30 AEDT A 'Digital Mortgage' or a 'Digital Veneer'? ... with Shane Rigby
Morse code is digital! A fax is digital! Too many of today's so-called 'Digital Mortgages' are simply old business practices hidden under a cloak of digital technologies. Great social media, slick mobile apps and e-signing does not necessarily deliver a truly digital mortgage. Like any veneer it can look good, and can be cheap and quick to deliver.

At LIXI we're committed to truly digitising lending - not just providing a digital veneer. Our standards are just the start - join this meeting to hear what we've done this year and look into the crystal ball to see what's around the corner.
14:00-14:30 AEDT Lending Industry Regulatory Update with Elise Ivory and Jon Denovan
Regulatory change continues at a break-neck pace. With the expansion of Best Interests Duty and Conflicted Remuneration, changes to Responsible Lending, and the introduction of Open Banking, there is no shortage of changes to keep the LIXI community busy.

Join Jon Denovan and Elise Ivory as they discuss the impact of some of the proposed changes to help you prepare.

Wednesday 25th of November

11:00-11:30 AEDT Automation with LIXI2 with Shane Rigby
Join the LIXI CEO on a tour of some of the tools that our community is using to automate more, enabling software to be delivered and updated more quickly. Without going into the technical details, you'll see how the LIXI2 standards and the supporting tools are critical to adapting quickly to an ever changing environment.
14:00-14:30 AEDT A Tutorial on the Credit Application Standard with John Matthews
LIXI's Technical Lead hosts this whistle-stop tour of the Credit Application Standard. This would be perfect for anyone interested in learning more about the breadth of the credit application standard and learning more about the data structure of a LIXI message.

Thursday 26th of November

11:00-11:30 AEDT Open Banking with Mark Verstege
If you've got questions about Open Banking, this is the session for you! Where have we reached with Open Banking? What is the
current consent model, and where is it likely to be extended? What are been the barriers to adoption to date? What remains unfinished, what are the problems to solve for? How might this relate to LIXI going forward?
14:00-14:30 AEDT Insights into the Future with Stephen Moore & Shane Rigby
Join a discussion session with the LIXI Chair and the LIXI CEO taking a glimpse into the future of the industry and what it means for LIXI. Many of the big trends shaping the industry have implications for data standards and LIXI is well poised to address these.

Friday 27th of November

9:30-10:00 AEDT LIXI AGM
