Innovation for Financial Services 2014 is a series of specialized international events for people working with innovation in the financial services sector and surrounding industries. The aim is to visit prime financial services centers across the world, building connections between financial services professionals, consultants, ICT experts, policy makers and academics and enabling them to present and discuss the latest developments relating to innovations for, and within, the financial services sector. Organized in close cooperation with Finance Montréal, the next event will be held in Montréal, on October 16th and 17th. It will be jointly organized with Montréal FinTech Forum, a leading forum for IT and Finance experts.

Montréal is a leading financial center in North America, and has demonstrated its strength through its stability during the recent financial turmoil. The international character of Montréal, its pro-business and dynamic environment and multicultural workforce are well known to its various business partners. As with the previous editions, Innovation for Financial Services 2014 will deal with innovation in financial services under all of its possible forms. This allows covering a large spectrum of the research and practitioner activities in innovation for financial services.
