Thu, 25 Apr 2019, 07:30 am UTC
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced the agenda for the upcoming distributed ledger technology (DLT) and digital assets-focused forum.
The 2019 FinTech Forum will be hosted by the SEC's Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology (FinHub) on May 31 at the SEC's headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The forum will feature four panels which will see participation from representatives from a number of consulting and tech giants, startups and more. This includes Deloitte, Fidelity Brokerage Services, Ernst & Young, IBM, R3 and others.
The panels will discuss capital formation considerations, trading and markets considerations, investment management considerations, and distributed ledger technology innovations with particular focus on industry trends and specific use cases for financial markets.
The FinTech Forum is open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. No registration is required to attend the event. A live webcast will also be available on the SEC's main website
In October 2018, the SEC launched FinHub as part of its efforts to facilitate its engagement with innovators, developers, and entrepreneurs involved in financial technology (fintech).
The SEC and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) are going to hold the National Compliance Outreach Program for Broker-Dealers on June 27, 2019. The program will focus on insights from leadership, protecting retail investors, and regulatory “hot topics” such as digital assets and cybersecurity.
