Some are comparing the legalization of cannabis to the end of Prohibition and there is no shortage of large and small green entrepreneurs racing to claim their stake in what Grand View Research estimates to be a $66 billion industry by the year 2025. However, are the people, the local, state and federal governments and financial markets ready for this billion-dollar green economy?

We invite you to join us as Kristoffer Inton, Director of Basic Materials Equity Research at Morningstar moderates a discussion with Daniel Stipano, Partner, Davis Polk & Wardwell Financial Institutions Group, Lauren Kohr, SVP Chief Risk Officer, Old Dominion National Bank and Jaret Seiberg Washington Research Group, Financial Services, Cowen Investment Management as they discuss the future of the cannabis market. We’ll review various state, federal and non-US cannabis laws, current and upcoming legislation reform efforts, potential regulatory and enforcement risks and investment opportunities and risks.

Topics to be Discussed: 

  • Reviewing various state, federal and non-US cannabis laws – where are we and where are we going?
  • Learn how marijuana proceeds move via alternative payment systems through financial institutions. Which aspects of Banking and/or FinTech can/will participate?
  • Current and upcoming legislation reform efforts, recent industry guidance, and what may change under the new administration.
  • Potential regulatory and enforcement risks associated with offering financial services to cannabis-related businesses (CRBs), and best practices for mitigating those risks.
