If you want to get a better understanding of the future of financial services you don’t ask an expert – you ask eight of them.
For our Looking Forward series into the Future of Fintech we interviewed some of the smartest thinkers and doers in Canadian fintech, from a top lawyer advising companies in the blockchain space (Ross McKee) to a VC investing in fintech AI startups (Peggy van de Plassche) and the founders of companies (Jon Lister, Daniel Eberhard) who are building the next generation of financial services.
