Entitled “The Rise of Alternative Finance”, we will explore new methods of finance, from peer-to-peer lending, crowdfunded small business and real estate finance, as well as review existing and developing legal considerations and international initiatives.  In bringing together industry thought-leaders, this is destined to offer unique and valuable insights to this growing industry.
