Looking to the future: the risks and rewards of new opportunities

In recent years, the post-crisis economic recovery has shown signs of increasing growth and innovation. However, financial institutions must carefully manage the risks and rewards of these new opportunities. The Twelfth Annual Risk Conference on April 10-11, 2019, will explore diverse perspectives on the financial services sector as experts gauge the current state of the industry and attempt to discern a sustainable path forward. Topics will range from traditional issues like the credit growth cycle and bank regulation to the emerging applications of technologies like blockchain. We invite attendees to come participate in this day-and-a-half overview of the major trends shaping financial services and the opportunities that lie ahead. The conference is co-organized by the John L. Keeley Jr. Center for Financial Services at DePaul University and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
