New technologies are creating opportunities for financials and non-financial firms and reshaping the market. Non-financials, such as Amazon and Google, are entering the financial space, but there is no framework at present to regulate them. The absence of a regulatory framework creates new risks – so what are these risks and how should they be regulated?
The harmonisation of smart contracts and blockchain technology has the ability to transform how derivatives are executed and managed throughout their lifecycle. So how can this technology be used to redesign derivatives infrastructure? What role does fintech have in assisting green sustainable investment and could it be a key driver of financial markets globally?
Recent publication of guidance on cryptoassets and the confirmation of what instruments and activities are within the regulatory perimeter. What are the market implications and approaches to AML/KYC? What is legal treatment and status of cryptoassets in Europe?
Gain insights into these questions at FIA's Compliance and Regulation Forum on 18 September. Panellists will share their perspectives on two closely related trends at the intersection of technology and financial services: fintech and digital assets.
Panellists will discuss their strategies for engaging with fintech innovation and cover the potential impact of innovations such as artificial intelligence, smart contracts, and the challenges of adapting existing regulatory frameworks to cover non-financial companies entering the financial space. The panellists will also discuss their efforts to establish a regulatory framework for cryptoassets.
