Banks and financial technology: will banks become back offices for FinTech companies?

Thursday 12 October (0930 - 1230)

Room C4.10, Convention Centre, Level 4


Banking & Financial Law Committee (Lead)


Efficiency and low costs of financial service: is that what makes FinTech successful? How should banks respond? What is the regulatory response? Lawyers, industry representatives and regulators will discuss whether pressure on banks from FinTech companies will force banks to change their business model and how regulators with prudential or financial stability mandate should react.
