Developing the FinTech Ecosystem: the challenges of regulation, innovation and digitalisation
Given the significant impact of digitalisation on all types of products and consumers, the objective of this conference is to provide a platform for an exchange of good practices across the various supervisors and providers of financial services, thereby contributing to greater regulatory consistency across the different segments of financial services.
This conference will first explore how and to which extent big data can benefit customers and providers alike. Innovation will also be debated with respect to payment systems, especially by assessing the winners and losers of the vast regulatory package for payments that is gradually being implemented. Finally, this year, as in the past, one specific market and type of technology will be singled out for in-depth coverage. This year’s conference will focus on blockchain and its impact on securities value chain.
Registration is free of charge for CEPS/ECMI/ECRI members, EU/national officials, full-time academics, PhD students (subject to available seats), NGOs (not representing industry sectors or a commercial interest) and press. Other participants may be admitted for €250 (VAT included, payable in advance or at the registration desk).
