Every year, the BC Securities Commission hosts a half-day event to discuss and debate important issues facing Canadian regulators.  In the past, we have had international and Canadian experts examine such topics as outcomes-focused securities regulation in action, regulatory and criminal securities’ enforcement, and the challenges facing Canadian investors in the 21st Century.

This year Capital Ideas is very timely. Business leaders and regulators will discuss how regulators should respond to the international credit market crisis and its fallout on the broader capital markets.  The panellists have impressive backgrounds and a wealth of experience:

  • Doug Hyndman, Chair and CEO of the Canadian Securities Transition Office, Vancouver, BC
  • Dr. Malcolm K. Knight, Vice Chairman, Deutsche Bank, New York
  • Greg Tanzer, Secretary General, International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO) Madrid, Spain
  • And Dr. Patricia Walters, CFA, Clinical Associate Professor of Accounting, Fordham University President, Disclosure Analytics Inc. New York.

Ian Hanomansing, host of CBC’s News in Vancouver and sometime host of The National will moderate the panellists. Discussions will range from how to manage systemic risk, globally and locally, to identifying the needs of retail investors going forward.

If you are interested in listening to this dialogue, the BCSC website will post the webcast on its website after December 1st, 2009.
