The Canada FinTech Forum, presented for the 5th consecutive year, will take place in Montréal on October 10 and 11, 2017 and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s expertise will be showcased before some 1,500 expected participants.

President and CEO, Emilio B. Imbriglio, will lead the “Development of fintech ecosystems in world’s financial centres: different approaches to building buzz” panel. Also, Jonathan Hamel, CEO and Co-founder of Catallaxy, will give a conference on “Blockchain / Bitcoin, A Decentralized Revolution” while Francis Pouliot, Co-founder of Catallaxy and cryptographic research and assets specialist, will be one of the experts participating in the conference on “Smart contracts and financial services: A discussion on the transactional application of blockchain”. To complement our experts’ visibility, the firm will host a networking cocktail to end the forum.

Implementing a technological shift for clients

To carve a leading position in the use of artificial intelligence in financial services, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton undertook a major technological shift last year by launching several solutions based on new technologies. Remember that the firm partnered with three young entrepreneurs to create Catallaxy, a blockchain expertise centre based in Montréal that will invest in the research, development, training and marketing of blockchain technology.
