Technology is driving rapid transformation across the financial services industry. The IIF is leading efforts to help the financial services industry and the public sector understand technology-driven trends reshaping the industry. Our Innovations Team works to explore the implications of blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning, increased automation, the rise of mobile, marketplace lending, and other technologies for the industry and regulators. We are also helping lead the effort to support “regtech,” the use of new technologies to meet regulatory and compliance challenges more effectively and efficiently. Our technology events bring together senior public sector officials with industry leaders and leading technology companies.
