Virtual International Leadership Program for Securities Regulators II

Evolving Markets, Evolving Risks: Roles of Securities Regulators and Supervisors in the New Normal

Tuesday, September 1, 2020 - Thursday, September 3, 2020

Registration is now closed. 

Program Overview

Toronto Centre’s virtual International Program for Securities Regulators and Supervisors examines the challenges and risks stemming from market, technological and regulatory developments, and further from the compounding affects of the pandemic.

As a result, supervisors and regulators must think beyond traditional markets and risks to build supervisory capacity by adapting their risk assessment frameworks and devising plans to see into and beyond markets, so that they can deliver on their intervention mandates. Toronto Centre has designed this program to help securities supervisors and regulators consider how to integrate these developing scenarios into their supervisory risk assessments and to be better prepared as they may evolve in their respective jurisdictions.

Through group activities, based on possible scenarios, participants in this program will better understand these market models and the potential impact the pandemic, climate change and technology transformation could pose to the market stability and conduct, as well as to vulnerable groups.  Participants will learn to consider a proportional approach in their supervisory guidance. This program will provide an excellent platform for participants to systematically generate ideas to address these risks while discussing their own experiences and learning from leading experts and their peers.
