FinTech and RegTech: trends, issues and challenges
Date: 18 March, 8.30 a.m.
Location: VU Library Scientific Communication and Information Center, Conference room, Sauletekio ave. 5, Vilnius
The so-called exponential technologies such as the IoT, cloud, artificial intelligence or blockchain are changing the way how data is collected and processed, how business processes and transactions are executed, and how new services are developed and can be monitored or regulated by responsible institutions.
While industry players are already applying new knowledge to develop financial innovations, to improve customer experience, and to reduce costs, the dual novelty on the process and the tech side implies high uncertainties and risks with regard to management function and the capability of the regulatory function to be effective without compromising legal and ethical norms.
At this conference we will bring forth views, opinions, and arguments from the industry and academia to discuss the trends and challenges of the financial technologies (FinTech) and their compliance- and regulation-oriented programmes (RegTech).
The conference is intended for lecturers, students, enthusiasts, industry and government reps – all those who can benefit from open, motivated, interdisciplinary discussion on the topic.
