The Future of Money

On behalf of the Forstner Group Inc., Blakes and Campbell Strategies, you are invited to attend an event with a group of business and policy leaders to discuss “The Future of Money.” Our presenters will address the issues and implications of the rapid digitization of money, alternative currencies and financial innovation. This is a dynamic backdrop for Toronto’s banking and capital markets driven economy.

In the context of accelerating innovation and new technology, the implications are significant, posing fundamental questions for monetary policy, the role of central banks, banking and capital markets, cybersecurity, individual privacy, the role of governments, regulation, and public policy.
