One mandate of the Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab at Ivey Business School is to shape a new generation of technologically savvy and innovative leaders for the financial services industry. The Lab provides Ivey HBA, MBA, and MSc students with onsite experiences at Scotiabank and the Scotiabank Digital Factory through internships, summer rotations, and research projects. We also provide mentoring and educational opportunities through the Ivey FinTech Club (founded in 2016) – the first Canadian university club devoted to studying digital disruption and FinTech innovation.

FinTech's Impact on Wealth Management

by Jessica Lomazzo

IFP Executive Summary
The following presentation is an extract of my Ivey Field Project deliverable for the Ivey Scotiabank Digital Banking Lab. Note that I am a fourth year student at the Ivey Business School with no prior research or experience on this topic or in the space – I do not claim to be an expert, merely an enthusiast.

The project’s purpose was to understand the current state of the MFDA wealth management space in Canada and what it may look like in the future given the introduction of new technologies. Process flows and value chains were analyzed to understand areas that were unusually sensitive to innovation and/or disruption and to predict how they may develop over time.
