The Digital Finance Institute, as the first institutional organization of its kind to focus on FinTech, looks at the nexus between several converging areas – financial technology, innovation in finance, financial regulation and financial inclusion with a view to being a much-needed institutional voice to participate in the dialogue on how law and policy can impact upon the development of FinTech around the world.
We also are active in helping build a FinTech ecosystem nationally and globally. We do that by building commercial relationships in other countries like Iran, by holding FinTech Conferences, launching the first FinTech Awards in Canada and helping to establish a FinTech Association.
We also participate with Carlisle & Gallagher and SWIFT / Innotribe in the FemTech Leaders series, a site that profiles the top women in FinTech around the world and joins them together under one global umbrella comprised of the top finance companies in the world. We also advocate and work towards the establishment of FinTech hubs in Toronto and Vancouver to support new start-ups to engage in FinTech.
