Capital Ideas 2012

An open dialogue on innovation in the securities markets



Park Ballroom, Four Seasons Hotel
Vancouver, BC


On November 14, 2012, the British Columbia Securities Commission hosted an open dialogue for capital markets professionals and business leaders.

The BCSC's Executive Director, Paul Bourque, moderated two expert panels: one on the impact of a best interest (fiduciary) standard on dealers working with retail clients; the other on financing for small mining and technology companies, including the new crowdfunding phenomenon. More than 120 people attended the half-day forum at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.
