There is anticipation of further consolidation of the sector leading on from the outcomes of the royal commission. Some may be looking at expanding their footprint by merger/acquisition and others will be looking at how they keep their organisations going and/or create economies of scale by seeking a merger with a larger provider rather than leave the market altogether. This session will touch on both sides of the scale.
