Fintech & The Law

First Canadian Place

Join us for an evening of Learning, Sharing & Networking on Fintech & Law. Technology is constantly evolving, and lawyers & businesses must keep up-to-date with the changes to assist regulators and ensure compliance. In that context, what are the issues with fintech? What Security/breaches, regulations and compliance implications must be considered? The challenges in Fintech especially (the intersection of Finance & Technology) are exponential as this rapidly evolving sector has regulators scrambling to keep up. No longer are financial services thought out in terms of Fiat currency, but they now have to encompass the digital world of crypto-currencies. No longer are financial services operated by human ressources, they now have to foresee the intervention of Artificial Intelligence ressources and all its ethical innuendos. No longer are legacy laws & regulations sufficient to guide the actions of a world transformed by emerging tech, instead, regulators must adapt old rules to, or create new ones for this brave new world in the hopes of preventing the abuse of vulnerable consumers and ensuring the safety of society’s economic foundations. In this event, we will cover various laws & regulations that are currently impacting Financial Services & Emerging Technologies at the Canadian and International (US , UK, EUR, Asia, Middle East ) levels, CRA, CSA, FINTRAC and recent industry news. We will also discuss Anti-Money Laundering & Anti-Terrorist Financing ramifications. Come hear from lawyers and experts in the field and some of the proposed solutions to current Fintech challenges. Ask questions “Learn” and gain valuable tips to extend your understanding of law & regulations impact on Fintech business. All of our events include time at the beginning and end to “Share” your own experiences and challenges, and “Network” with experts and like minded individuals. This event is best suited for businesses, lawyers, professionals, entrepreneurs and all others looking to understand the impact of laws & regulations on emerging technologies.
