EKB partner, Kelly Samuels, will be a panelist at Business in Vancouver’s Business Excellence Series discussion on FinTech on September 12, 2017. The event will be held at the Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Vancouver.
Financial technology, or FinTech, is an emerging aspect of the financial services sector in which digital technology is applied to traditional financial products and services. The term encompasses everything from mobile banking to robo-advising, peer-to-peer lending, crypto currencies such as bitcoin and more. It is disrupting the way business has been traditionally conducted. Financial institutions and businesses alike are navigating their way through the complex regulatory landscape, which is struggling to keep up with the pace of innovation.
The panel features industry players as well as professionals and will focus on helping small and medium-sized businesses make informed decisions in this emerging area.
Kelly is a corporate commercial lawyer who advises credit unions in all aspects of their businesses, including regulatory compliance and privacy matters. She has a special interest in the evolving FinTech sector in Canada and its potential applications of decentralized blockchain technology.
