The Future of Money

— University of Toronto to host thought leaders in forum about the future of currency —

Toronto, ON (April 26, 2022) – The University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, together with sponsors from across the financial sector, will host The Future of Money (#theFOM22), a compelling event to consider how new digital currency is rapidly changing businesses, governments, and society at large.

On May 19, 2022, The Future of Money will bring together more than 30 of North America’s prominent thought leaders, public officials, and captains of industry — representing a wide cross-section of the financial services ecosystem including banks, financial technology companies and government officials. Participants will take part in a free-flowing, closed roundtable discussion on the future of money, with the aim of developing policy recommendations for inclusion in a white paper authored by the Munk School’s Innovation Policy Lab, as well as to define the discussion themes for the ticketed keynote panel event later in the day.

“Money is changing. Digital currencies provide both far-reaching potential for global growth, stability and prosperity, but also massive regulatory challenges,” said Peter Loewen, Director of the Munk School. “Thank you to our many partners for sharing in the vision of the Future of Money event and encouraging open discussion about the complex societal opportunities and challenges this
