International Leadership Program for Securities Regulators


Sunday, July 12, 2020 - Friday, July 17, 2020

Program Overview

The role and importance of regulation and supervision of capital markets has grown in the past decade due to new regulations as well as fast evolving technological changes and climate-related risks. Therefore, it is important that regulators and supervisors assess the adequacy of their current regulatory frameworks to respond quickly and appropriately to new sources of risks. Toronto Centre’s international program for securities regulators and supervisors will provide participants with the tools to face these challenges successfully and thrive in a constantly evolving financial system. It also provides them with the opportunity to practice the roles that monetary policy makers in central banks, regulatory and supervisory authorities, and industry play in managing a crisis. Computer-simulated exercises will explore how each of the players of the financial system will interact and co-ordinate with each other during a crisis.

The program will be delivered by Toronto Centre program leaders who have a wealth of experience in financial sector regulation and supervision. They will share their experiences through Toronto Centre’s interactive approach to learning in the form of case studies, group activities, role plays, simulation, panel discussions and action planning exercise.

Topics Covered:

  • Developing green capital markets
  • Technology risk in capital markets
  • Establishing a regulatory sandbox within the organization to address innovative services or products
  • Using the regulatory sandbox to address a new type of product being offered in multiple jurisdictions
  • Addressing an evolving crisis that involves the transmission of risk across different sectors of the financial markets and across borders
  • Leadership skills: action planning and ensuring critical success with key stakeholders
