Join us on October 17 to hear from leaders in the digital asset space who are successfully navigating the regulatory landscape.

  • Canadian securities regulators have been asserting jurisdiction over the crypto asset market, but what is currently permitted in Canada?

  • How does the Canadian approach compare to other jurisdictions, like the U.S., and how does it impact Canadian dealers and asset managers considering how to incorporate the digital asset ecosystem into their business models.

  • Will we see crypto derivatives platforms in Canada and what products and uses will crypto assets have in the investment space?

  • Clients are not just investing in crypto assets but using them – does this change how we view these assets?

  • Rapid fire discussion on emerging digital asset categories, including NFTs, DeFi, and the Metaverse and their impact on clients and the financial industry.
