Thirteenth Annual Risk Conference

Thirteenth Annual Risk Conference Logo

The world is rapidly changing around us. The global economic outlook is uncertain and technology is transforming key aspects of the financial sector. In this year’s Risk Conference, we will engage “A World in Motion” and explore a wide range of evolving issues in this changing environment. Financial executives will speak to the challenge of change management and regulators will address their approach to sustainable change. As technological innovation increases the pace of change, new risks and opportunities emerge. Panel topics will include the economy and financial markets, cybersecurity risks, core technology providers for banks, and the supervisory environment. In this day-and-a-half conference, attendees will learn from industry experts about ideas for adapting to this changing world. Media Disclaimer: No media and/or recording will be permitted at this event.

Note

After careful consideration of the growing public health concerns associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19), our colleagues from DePaul University’s Keeley Center for Financial Services and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago have made the decision to cancel the Thirteenth Annual Risk Conference.

This decision was made out of an abundance of caution to help safeguard the health and well-being of the more than 250 anticipated conference participants, as well as our esteemed speakers and panelists.
