ABOUT THE SUMMIT:

The landscape of Canadian business financing is rapidly evolving. Alternate capital sources are growing due to a combination of regulations in commercial lending and technology, and new players finding new ways of accessing financing versus traditional bank financing. However, concerns over systemic risks involved in alternative lending and specialty finance still exist calling for a regulatory framework to minimize these risks, ensure investor protection and safeguard markets.

‚Äč

iGlobal Forum, in partnership with Canadian Lenders Association, are proud to present the inaugural event Canadian Lenders Summit (October 26, Toronto, Canada) which will explore these pertinent issues and more. It will bring together thought leaders from all sides of the specialty finance industry, discussing the major shifts in geopolitical, economic and technological factors affecting investment opportunities today. The event will be a key platform to network with Canadian and US specialty finance experts, who will showcase how to thrive during periods of uncertainty and exploit new asset classes, geographies and partnerships to better meet market needs and provide attractive risk-adjusted returns.

KEY TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED:

  • Attracting the right investment and enabling foreign capital to become active in Canada

  • Latest regulatory developments shaping the Canadian specialty finance landscape and new players and partnerships emerging in the marketplace

  • Driving the expansion of Canadian fintech and solutions and their presence into the US

  • Assessing US and international models from other geographies and how they can be adopted in Canada

  • Growing Canada’s competitive advantage and leveraging it for successful entry into new global markets
