The University of Western Ontario’s Faculty of Law and Richard Ivey School of Business have launched a new collaborative program that will promote research into new financial products.


As investors become more sophisticated, an increasing number of complex instruments and products are being used by the financial services industry.


The Program on the Study of Financial Innovation will focus on issues relating to the development, regulation, and economic implications of innovative financial products, technologies and investment vehicles.


One of the program’s goals is to become a hub for discussion as well as debate among academics, practitioners and public policy-makers.
