SEPTEMBER 11-14, 2017 BOSTON, MA
This week of activities brings together Boston's financial services ecosystem to proliferate innovation in our city. Our hometown firms are some of the world's largest, investing and servicing trillions of dollars daily. Our universities are researching intractable problems facing society. Our startups are trailblazers. This week is a deep dive into the most investable, important opportunities in FinTech.

Disruption, market shifts, and economic changes can cause a previously successful company to flat-line very quickly. You have to be constantly on the alert for changes in your market that will impact your business. You have to be ready and able to pivot in time.
As with so many divergent views in today's global financial markets, the devil is in the details, or perhaps the definition, says Hegarty. It seems that the industry has started to use the terms “regulation” and “market structure” interchangeably when clearly regulation is but one element that makes up market structure.
