Since 2008 and the momentous events of the financial crisis, the John K. Keeley Jr. Center for Financial Services has collaborated with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to host a Risk & Banking Conference. The Risk Conference brings together regional and national banks of all sizes to discuss current topics in risk and banking.
What: The transformation of the financial services sector in recent years has been dramatic. Banks are rapidly adopting new technologies and the tech sector has sparked a digital transformation across numerous industries. In the world of data analytics, a growing number of data sources can be mined with artificial intelligence and machine learning. Even workplace culture and consumer behavior are changing with Millennials and Generation Z as the newest hires and expanding client base for financial services. This dramatic transformation has raised new issues for risk management and regulation of the U.S. banking sector. Join us on April 4-5, 2018, for the Eleventh Annual Risk Conference on “Transformation: Building on the past and looking to the future," co-sponsored by the Center for Financial Services at DePaul University and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.When: April 4 -5, 2018Register and learn more
