Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

The state of personal finance is undergoing massive change. Technology is creating unprecedented access to information, products and services. New entrants, from startups to large players like Amazon, are upturning the status quo in financial services. At the same time, social safety networks are evaporating and a dizzying array of choices face consumers.

FinTech (short for financial technology) is democratizing the space and powering the next wave of consumer experience. Hear from the leaders that are creating this change and leveling the playing field for better financial lives. If all you know about financial technology is a cursory understanding of Bitcoin, then this Talk is for you.

This program was curated in partnership with FinTEx, the non-profit FinTech trade association of Chicago and the broader Midwest.
