Presents

Dialogue with the regulators

Navigating Blockchain & Fintech Across Europe

19 March 2020 London

The regulatory challenges facing Europe are complex given regional variations in interpreting and implementing rules across various countries and jurisdictions. Despite the aim towards harmonization post 2008 financial crisis, uncertainty of the impact Brexit will have on policy and regulatory standards across Europe remains.

As the Second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MIFID II), the Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) come full force into 2020, they present substantial cross sector impact.

The region has led advances in blockchain technology around the world, with a supportive regulatory environment helping to provide fertile ground for innovation. Join us as we explore the path for the future as blockchain, cryptocurrency and regtech gain traction in the global economy. Hear government and industry leaders debate timely topics such as fragmentation, including the current existence of competing cryptocurrencies and countless blockchains, risks and opportunities, and digital assets.

London follows the first Dialogue with the Regulators forum in New York which brought together senior regulators from the SEC, FINRA, CFPB, and Texas State Securities Board along with key industry leaders. View details of DWR2019 here.
