Professor of Finance and Business Economics, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
Director, Capital Markets Institute @ Rotman

Keynote Speaker: Luigi Zingales, University of Chicago Booth School of Business

Professor Zingales, one of the world’s leading financial economists, will discuss the future of banking in the digital age, building on ideas from his innovative course, The Fintech Revolution, at the University of Chicago, and a new book that he has edited Handbook of Technological Finance. The talk will explore the ways, around the world, in which new technologies are helping to take the payment system from banks, how those same technologies are allowing new entrants in lending, and how the movement towards hard information and data are eroding the advantages of traditional branch networks. Professor Zingales will consider the value of open banking regulation, and other alternatives that have the potential to considerably change the banking sector.
