July 5, 2019
WASHINGTON — DC Fintech Week – Washington’s singular fintech innovation and global policy forum – is scheduled for Oct. 21-24, Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) has announced.
Fintech Week offers participants a unique global policy forum where thought-leaders can discover, discuss and debate the rapidly evolving changes to the financial ecosystem that drive policy and regulation – and what they mean to markets and investors.
This year, Fintech Week will be supported by a range of partners including IIEL, the United Kingdom’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Institute for Financial Markets (IFM), FiscalNote, the Democratic Republic of Italy, and Davis Polk LLP.
In recognition of DC Fintech Week, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission will hold Fintech Forward, its annual fintech event, to round out a robust week of discovery and debate in Washington.
During Fintech week, attendees will learn from some of the world’s leading legal experts, economists, entrepreneurs and academics as they discuss industry developments and the impact of innovation on global markets, policy and ultimately regulations. One-on-one, candid conversations with top-level executives at U.S., U.K. and other international regulatory agencies and central banks will enhance the program. Event participants also will have meaningful networking opportunities to exchange information and to continue the dialogue after the conference and throughout the year.
Fintech Week is unique among events aimed at a fintech audience in bringing together so many of the most senior regulatory chiefs and an audience of innovators and disruptors. Attendance at DC Fintech Week is free of charge. The aim is to elevate public understanding and discourse, by democratizing the ideas and thoughts driving industry and policymakers.
