Future of fintech and regulation
A speech by Greg Medcraft, Chairman, Australian Securities and Investments Commission at the British Australian Fintech Forum 2017 (London, United Kingdom), 20 April 2017
It is great to be here at the British Australian Fintech Forum 2017 and to bring the perspectives of the Australian financial services and markets regulator. I am very excited about the opportunities financial technology (fintech) presents and I am keen to talk to you about some of our thinking in this area today.
As regulators, in this fast paced environment, we want to keep our eyes on the transformative changes on the horizon. We want to engage with these trends, and truly understand them – so we are best placed to ensure that trust can be maintained in the financial sector.
