We were delighted to hold the 2nd Annual IIF Digital Finance Symposium on May 29 at the Jack Morton Auditorium at GW University.

The event explored key regulatory and policy considerations for digital finance, featuring a mix of prominent officials and industry representatives.

The summit convened industry and public sector leaders to discuss mainstreaming digital financial inclusion, and explored how the industry can keep moving forward to use the power of data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, blockchain and digital identity to modernize the financial inclusion process.

Topic coverage included:

  • Innovation Approaches, including Partnerships & Sandboxes
  • Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence
  • Consumer Data Protection and ‘Open Banking’
  • Cloud Computing
  • Future Disruptions

Policymakers, regulators and supervisors have a difficult but critical task in ensuring a resilient and stable financial system, providing competitive parity for all participants, and fostering an innovative, secure and competitive financial market and investment climate that fully supports capital formation, economic growth, and job creation, while protecting consumers. The IIF Digital Finance Symposium provided a timely opportunity to examine these critical policy issues.
