Central Banking FinTech & RegTech Global Summit

In 2018 technological innovation is transforming financial markets. Already, services, verticals and supply chains have changed on an unprecedented scale and at an unprecedented speed. But revolutionary opportunities bring revolutionary risks. Cryptocurrencies are forcing central banks to take sides, Artificial Intelligence pushing regulators out of their comfort zone, and Automated Reporting re-inventing the supervisory cycle. Yet, central bankers and supervisors increasingly recognise that it is no longer enough to be just a fast follower. Leading decision-makers know that a pro-active approach to FinTech, RegTech and SupTech represents the only feasible strategy.<br /> <br /> To this end, Central Banking Publications will host the two-day Central Banking FinTech&amp;RegTech Summit to enable practitioners to make the most of technological innovation - and provide them with the latest developments and good practice for utilising new FinTech, RegTech and SupTech tools such as Distributed Ledger Technology, Machine Learning and Cloud Computing to:<br /> <br /> Better manage supervisory data and practices<br /> Advance and encourage financial inclusion<br /> Effectively manage new types of financial, operational and compliance risk<br /> Better understand systemic risk<br /> Harness technology for payments and market infrastructure<br /> <br />
