THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar focuses on priorities for supporting the continued growth of UK FinTech, assessing how the policy and regulatory environment can most effectively encourage growth - and issues around skills, investment and the relationship between incumbents and challengers.
Discussion is expected on international priorities as the sector prepares for the impact of Brexit, including next steps for developing further FinTech bridges with international partners.
The conference will also be an opportunity to discuss the future of key regulatory and policy initiatives impacting the sector. This includes the FCA’s ongoing Regulatory Sandbox and the Bank of England’s FinTech Accelerator - as well as the recently published Patient Capital Review, with measures to create a Government backed venture capital investment trust that aims to support the long term financing of innovative firms to assist their scale up.
Delegates will also consider the FCA’s post-implementation review of the rules for crowdfunding, which includes proposals for higher standards of disclosure and stricter rules on wind-down plans for P2P firms - as well as issues around minimising risk.
