Systemic Changes and Systemic Risks

Systemic Changes and Systemic Risks
Financial systems and rules are never stationary. The scope of what has come up for grabs since the financial crisis, ranging from Brexit, the end of LIBOR, to political upheaval and the rapid impact of climate change, caught many of us off guard.  The Toronto PRMIA Chapter invites you to explore these topics with a panel of professionals who will discuss which of these and other changes have the most impact on the global financial system, as well as the risks they entail.
