Building Societies Annual Conference 2014

Sponsored by HP

What a change the last twelve months has seen. Threats of double and triple dip recessions have been replaced with positive signs of recovery, rapidly falling unemployment, talk of interest rates going up and concern about a house price bubble.

In this ever changing and ever challenging environment, we are seeking to bring together a conference line-up that will present and stimulate outstanding analysis, debate, insight and opinion. All combined with a compelling exhibition and an enjoyable social programme.

With an environment which might still be seen as toxic for the major banks, and in which challenges are being actively encouraged, the BSA is focusing on the real need for diversity across the financial services sector and on the vital role that mutuals play in contributing to that diversity of ownership model.

I hope you will come away from this year’s conference with renewed appreciation for what the mutual sector, and building societies in particular, have to offer; and fresh determination to make our businesses not only leaders in the UK banking sector; but bright lights showing the way for ever better member and customer outcomes.

Robin Fieth – CEO, BSA
