Outsider believes Money Management may have found a new home for its annual Fintech, Platforms, and Wraps Conference – RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
Royal Pines was the home of the Association of Financial Advisers annual conference for many years and Outsider notes that it will once again play host to Phil Kewin and his merry men and women in 2017.
And Outsider can understand why – a more than adequate conference area, better than average hotel facilities, a top-rate golf course, and weather at least five degrees warmer than Melbourne or even Sydney.
Outsider sought to remain incognito at the 2017 Fintech, Platforms, and Wraps event but noted how well delegates to the Money Management event mingled with the Queensland school principals attending a somewhat larger conference in an adjoining area.
Outsider was particularly impressed with the financial services types who (mistakenly, we hope) managed to eat and drink at the school principals’ gala dinner before attending the somewhat more modest Money Management affair.
He was equally impressed by the youngish financial services types who then showed a willingness to extend their education via some after-hours tuition with the aforementioned principals in the Royal Pines Hydrate Bar.
