Presentation: Filing the Future of ESG

"The SEC has proposed new rules which aim to bring decision-useful information to investors. Modeled off the Taskforce on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), these proposed changes have been receiving public support from Canada. This means that companies would be required to disclose the impact of climate-related events and transition activities that have, or are likely to have, a material impact on the company. As a result, changing consumer and investor preferences, reputational risk, and a company's value chain (both upstream and downstream) are to be included in each company's climate-related disclosures and GHG emissions. Once disclosed, this information will have a direct impact on a company's future financial health, including its access to financing."

Tanya Seajay, Chief Executive Officer at Orenda | a SIX company

3:30 - 4:20 p.m.

Discussion - Market Data in the Cloud – The Canada Edition

This is a layered and nuanced discussion. A global discussion but today adding a Canadian flavour. There are a multitude of types of data that can be placed in and delivered from ‘The Cloud’. That data can in turn operate a wide spectrum of latency. Clearly it is not one size fits all. We are on a journey to the Cloud and each of us is at different stages of that journey. Not everyone can be ’innovators’ or even a ‘early adopters’ nor should everyone. Being in the ‘early majority’ might be a healthy objective. This market data discussion has both technical and administrative dimensions let’s explore both!
