FinTech Symposium 2017

The Law of FinTech: Regulating Cryptocurrency, Crowdfunding, Robo-advisors, and Digital Banking

Please join us February 27th, 2017 as we bring together leading scholars and industry professionals to discuss key legal issues facing the young FinTech sector. The term “FinTech,” broadly describes financial innovations that utilize both the advanced technologies and the “disruption” mindset of startup companies. However, the financial industry has proven difficult to disrupt, as incumbents hold a huge advantage in their ability to navigate strict financial laws and regulations. Meanwhile, lawmakers themselves are wrestling to make room in the financial sector for young companies, while ensuring consumers are protected and financial crises are avoided. Our four panels of experts will discuss these issues as they pertain to four specific areas of FinTech: (1) Cryptocurrency, (2) Crowdfunding, (3) Robo-advising, and (4) Digital Banking.
