The conference is in memory of Professor Peter Christoffersen, our friend and colleague, who passed away in June 2018. Peter held the TMX Chair in Capital Markets and a Bank of Canada Fellowship and was a widely respected member of the Rotman School since 2010. Prior to 2010 Peter was a valued member of the Desautels Faculty of Management.
