Change is here - it arrived fast and furious. Digital technologies are disrupting the way banks do business and most importantly, changing customer expectations. To stay competitive, you need a strategy.

Infonex's Fintech Risks and Opportunities Canada will address the risks and opportunities to both legacy players and newcomers. You will hear from fintech industry leaders and traditional banking, insurance, and credit union leaders and explore the different approaches to capitalizing on fintechs potential: collaboration, acquisitions, and/or in-house innovation labs. You will also do the less-fun work of assessing the unrealized risks associated with digital transformation. What to consider for your risk assessments across the enterprise?

Our faculty will also examine the regulatory approaches to fintech, in particular how regulators will balance being a partner in maintaining an environment of entrepreneurship - which is necessary for financial services organizations to thrive - with the risk and governance priorities essential for stability. What will regulators do to ensure fairness between the different business models?

Traditional banking powerhouses are revisiting their business models and adopting new technologies. Start-up companies are nimble enough to quickly build platforms for online services, lower fees, and cheaper transfers. Digital transformation is expensive for both traditional organizations and venture start-ups - don't proceed blindly.

Attend Fintech Risk and Opportunities Canada and walk away with strategies for mitigating risks, meeting regulatory compliance, and evaluating options between partnering, and building in-house capacity. Register today!
