During the Covid pandemic, the 2021 Conference was moved online and secured attendance of an average of 150 AFB members across the six sessions. Following the success of the 2021 conference and feedback from AFB members, we will once again hold the 2022 conference online.

The 2022 programme will include some of the very latest insights from senior officials at the UK’s regulators and government policymakers on financial services policy and regulation in the UK. We will promote the conference to all AFB members and anticipate an audience of between 125 – 150 individuals per session.
