Regulatory Updates | 29/04/19

Speech by Christopher Woolard, Executive Director of Strategy and Competition at the FCA, delivered at the Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS) 2019, London.

• Five years on from its launch, we’re able to demonstrate that FCA Innovate is having a real impact.
• New technologies can help us tackle huge global issues – but this can’t be done in isolation. GFIN is helping bring such innovations to market on an international scale.
• The FCA is investing time and resource into exploring how technology can be used for public good – financial crime is a compelling example of this.
