In light of recently published research, the Capital Markets Institute at Rotman is an event on How Pervasive is Corporate Fraud? It’s More Common Than You Might Think. Following short presentations of the research, including implications for the Canadian Capital Markets, we will convene a panel of subject matter experts. Our esteemed panel of experts will bring together insights from academia, the plaintiff’s bar, regulators, and accountants.
This panel will be a unique opportunity to hear from experts in the field and to gain insights into the complexity of the issue of corporate fraud, including:
• the frequency and magnitude of fraud in capital markets.
• the implications of corporate fraud for investors, boards of directors, and the legal and regulatory community.
• the effectiveness of current regulatory and legal mechanisms in detecting and deterring fraud.

Canadian Crypto Regulation: Right Approach? What's Next?
By: Rotman FinHub and Capital Markets Institute

School of Management, Desautels
regulation of Crypto Assets is a global issue of growing concern. In the US,
the Financial Stability oversight council reports that “widespread adoption of
digital assets poses risk if the market continues to grow without better
oversight and enforcement.” Does the Canadian approach offer a viable solution?
Grant Vingoe, OSC CEO, suggests as much in a speech on October 6, 2022, “In
Canada, we have been at the forefront of bringing crypto assets into the
regulatory perimeter to give genuine innovators room to develop their ideas
while still protecting investors. We have taken many concrete measures while
others continue to struggle with definitions and fight jurisdictional battles….
Some of the largest platforms in the world … see the reputational value of
being within the regulatory perimeter and competing on a level playing field.
Well-run firms tend to be receptive to a reasonable approach that includes open
conversations, manageable deadlines, and an efficient onboarding process.”
