Make your ideas known.

The Research and Publications portfolio promotes student thought-leadership and discovery in the FinTech industry. Our researchers are paired with an HBA editor and receive mentoring from the Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab and KPMG, with the opportunity to write and publish an article which will be featured on several channels.

The Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab was established by a $3M donation from Scotiabank. As the first university research centre in Canada focused on financial technology, the Lab’s mandate is to study and understand the implications of digital disruption for banking and financial services, and to prepare students to operate in an environment of changing technology and innovation.
