Innovation Hub events

ASIC presents at fintech meetups and events to discuss the Innovation Hub and our approach to new business models, and to answer questions on regulation and compliance.


Voice Analytics Symposium

Tuesday 24 September 2019

Join ASIC and Australia’s first fintech minister, Senator Jane Hume, in Melbourne to learn the results of our Voice Analytics & Voice-to-Text (VA&VT) trial.

Earlier this year, ASIC conducted a VA&VT trial examining issues identified in ASIC’s Report 587 The sale of direct life insurance. The report found that inappropriate sales practices led to poor consumer outcomes.

ASIC chose three trial demonstrators, Call Journey, Daisee and Deloitte, via a tender process. They were provided with a dataset of 1,700 life insurance sales calls and were asked to apply their regtech solutions to analyse and report on calls to determine:

  1. whether call quality was sufficient to transcribe the voice data in the calls into text
  2. if the call quality allowed for it, to identify poor conduct by directly analysing voice signals, and/or using other methods.

If you can’t join us in Melbourne, the symposium will be broadcast live on YouTube and There will be interactive Q&A sessions via, as well as Twitter, using the hashtag #ASICregtech19.

Financial Advice Files Symposium

Thursday 22 August 2019

The second event in ASIC’s Regtech Initiative series – the Financial Advice Files Symposium – saw six demonstrators analyse financial advice files to identify risk indicators around non-compliance. These new technologies have the potential to help advisers and entities meet their regulatory and professional requirements.

In his opening statement, Deputy Chair Daniel Crennan QC said the financial advice industry should include capacity to explore, test and implement ‘compliance-by-design’ regtech solutions into their business model. This message was reinforced by industry experts, sharing their observations of regtech trends and projections of what’s to come during the panel discussion and commentator observation sessions.
