Public Lecture: Global Digitalisation of Financial Services

Global Digitalisation on Financial Services - the Challenges and Opportunities for Australia

Distributed Ledger Technologies have the potential to lay the foundations for a new global financial services model.

Australia is the most overweight to financial services of any developed country. Is this our greatest challenge or opportunity?

Heath Behncke, a former ANU Economics graduate, will discuss the potential impact of accelerating global digitalisation trends for Australian Financial Services.

Refreshments will be served following the public lecture.


Heath Behncke is the Founder and CEO of Holon Global Investments, a funds management company focused on the global digital economy.

Heath graduated from the ANU with BEc (First Class Honours), and over the last twenty years has forged a strong career in investment management, developing a deep knowledge of equities markets and the financial services sector.

Since 2016, Heath has focused on researching and investing in digital markets, gaining a solid understanding of the global digital transformation underway.

He has identified potential impacts on capital markets and wealth management from digitalisation, and in response, established Holon to pursue the global digitalisation investment thesis.

Heath is also an investment committee member of the ANU Student Managed Fund and an Associate of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia.
