The Fintech Ecosystem

This webinar is the third in a series that explores the traditional compliance function in the technologically driven Fintech environment.

In this webinar we will examine the scale and evolution of Fintech providers and evaluate the EU Commission’s strategy of optimising the benefits of Fintech with appropriate compliance and regulatory frameworks.

The webinar will provide a range of perspectives from financial service providers and compliance professionals on the following inter-related themes:

  • The scale, challenges, opportunities, and business models of various Irish & EU Fintech service providers;
  • The evolution of Fintech providers in the context of how financial stability, financial integrity and consumer/investor protection can be ensured in light of the new opportunities and compliance risks in financial services;
  • The European Commission’s strategic focus on optimising the benefits of Fintech – lower costs, broader range of products/services, greater inclusion – with regulatory risks;
  • The future frontiers of Fintech innovation and regulation.
