Session Descriptions

Keynote Discussion: Embracing Change – Tone at the Top
Setting the 'tone at the top' is critically important in establishing organizational cultures that are innovative and adaptive to change. OSC Chair and CEO Maureen Jensen and CIBC President and CEO Victor Dodig will discuss their perspectives on leadership, while addressing investor protection, the evolution of corporate governance and shifting technologies.

Panel: The Evolving Investor Experience
The landscape for investors is rapidly changing, and their experiences and expectations will continue to evolve given the rapid growth in financial innovation and technology. Regulators need to work with the financial services industry to fully understand and respond to the changing needs of the investing public. How will the advisory service model change to accommodate all levels of Canadian wealth segmentation? What will the marketplace look like, and how will we meet the needs of Canadian investors in the coming years?

Panel: Retooling Enforcement Strategies for Changing Times
This panel discussion will explore how regulators are adapting enforcement strategies for changing technology and market disruption. What are the challenges, and the benefits, of integrating analytics into enforcement tactics? What other tools are we using to evolve our approach?

Keynote Presentation: A Brave New World: How AI, Blockchain and Other Technologies will Alter Financial Services Forever
Innovative business models using new technologies such as AI, machine learning and blockchain are transforming the capital markets and how firms do business with their clients. Global futurist Nikolas Badminton will provide insights into the future of the financial services landscape.

Panel: AI – A Game Changer for Financial Services?
Recent advancements in machine intelligence are part of the wave of digital technology innovations sweeping the financial industry. Artificial intelligence (AI) will contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030, a figure greater than the current output of China and India combined. This panel will discuss how AI will shape financial services adaptation, and how the financial industry will use AI to transform business models, regulation and the investor experience.

Panel: Governance for the Long Term
This panel will explore the evolving expectations for boards of directors in the oversight of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. These issues are about trust, risk and opportunity, and financial implications for investors and markets. How public companies address ESG issues will inform investment and voting decisions and can help investors to effectively manage risk at the portfolio level.
