CEPS-ECMI-ECRI Fintech Day
The pace of data-driven innovation is accelerating in financial services. The promise of benefit for both firms and clients will become reality as long as the right policies and enablers are in place. To help meet that challenge, CEPS, ECRI and ECMI are jointly organising their Annual Fintech Day on “Big Data, Innovation and Regulation in Finance: Finding the right balance!”
Given the significant impact of digitalisation on all types of products and clients, the objective of this conference is to provide a platform for the exchange of good practices across the various supervisors and providers of financial services, thereby contributing to greater regulatory consistency across the different segments of financial services. As such, the scope is relatively wide and intends to include retail financial services (credit, savings and payments), as well as investments and insurance. The programme features key stakeholders in the financial services sector and high-level representatives from the European institutions, national authorities, the financial industry, FinTech start-ups and academia.
The conference will first explore the interplay between data privacy rights and financial innovation. It will then discuss the potential benefits, risks and challenges for robo-advisors and the capacity to progress from niche markets to the mainstream. The debate will also explore how policy-makers could further help financial firms better protect critical data against increasingly complex cyber-attacks. Finally, the conference will place some focus on the Payment Service Directive 2 and what it implies for banking.
