Our 2019 GRI Risk Summit- Dynamic Risk-A Shifting Landscape- is a wrap, and dynamic it was! From our panel on Open Banking- with lessons learned from our friends in the U.K. and Australia. To the insights from our keynote speaker on the future of the Canada- U.S. Relationship and the explorations of cyber risk, artificial intelligence & sustainable finance – the dialogue was stimulating and provocative!

We took some time to think about our own profession, and what talent we will need to face the future head on. The high energy “Big Ideas and Bold Perspectives” discussing the perils of global investing, the digital future of financial services, and rethinking financial risk in an area of climate change, were astounding hits. Finally, our Chief Risk Officer best practice panel – always a perennial favourite- lived up to its billing!

Thank-you to all who participated, spoke at our conference, moderated panels, and the team that took care of every detail. The conference was once again an unqualified success.

Mark you calendar for next year on October 8th, 2020 to join us in celebrating our 10th anniversary.”
