Session Descriptions

Keynote Discussion
Gamechanger: How Blockchain Could Challenge the Fundamentals of Our Markets
Audience members will learn about blockchain and the extent to which it could challenge the fundamentals of our markets. Distributed ledger technology and its impact on information transparency, security and privacy are just a few examples of how blockchain represents a disruptive force that could change the game for investors, industry and regulators alike.

Panel One
Blockchain and the Future of Canada’s Capital Markets
This panel will explore what blockchain could mean for capital markets in Canada. How will the day-to-day activities of investors and market participants be impacted? How do we maximize any benefits while minimizing any unintended risks?

Panel Two
Fintech: What It Means for Investors and Emerging Businesses
Attendees will learn about the emergence of fintechs in Canada and what innovation we have seen to date. To what degree are fintechs helping to address longstanding issues such as access to financial services, information and disclosure, costs and efficiencies and the increasingly important user experience?


Keynote Discussion
Disruption and the Investor: A Regulator’s Perspective
This one-on-one discussion will explore how regulators respond to disruptive forces. Are past approaches to investor protection - such as disclosure, choice and the removal of conflicts of interest - still relevant for these times?

Panel Three
Innovative Oversight in the Midst of Disruption
Regulators and central banks are applying innovative practices to their oversight of fintech and disrupted markets. What role can they play in preparing investors for the emerging environment? What proactive approaches can be taken to build in risk mitigation and reduce regulatory burden?

Panel Four
Regulators and Entrepreneurs: How We Work Together

Attendees will gain insight into how regulators are already working together with entrepreneurs to benefit from fintech. What opportunities exist for both groups to deliver a more valuable product or service that does not place the consumer at risk?

Venue

The Toronto Board of Trade is in First Canadian Place (Adelaide St. entrance) with the main ballroom found on the fourth floor.
