Good morning and thank you for inviting me to speak at your conference for the third consecutive year. It's a pleasure to be with you.
The stockbrokers and financial advisers community is one of ASX's most important stakeholder groups. Many of you are our direct customers. Many of you work shoulder to shoulder with ASX on a range of projects, be they regulatory initiatives to keep the quality of our marketplace high or business innovations that seek to cut costs and improve efficiencies for you and your clients. I thank you for your partnership and support.
The significant relationship between ASX and the community in this room underpins my address today. Much of ASX's current work program involves engaging more closely with brokers and advisers, to better understand your challenges and create opportunities for future growth – your growth and ours.
