The Future of Finance: Strategies for a Fast-Changing Industry

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 / 10:15 am - 11:15 am

Innovative technologies, with their promise of faster, more efficient markets, are reshaping the global financial services industry. Traditional institutions are competing with nimbler, more specialized platforms that transact loans and payments with greater speed than traditional institutions. Investment funds are playing a bigger role in lending to small enterprises and infrastructure projects. The new entrants to the market, and old players taking on new roles, can help economies grow, but they also may bring new risks to financial markets. Can regulators keep pace with this rapid change? What new measures are needed to monitor them? This panel will feature representatives of leading financial institutions sharing their views about the future of finance.
