FinTech & Regulatory Technology, the Perspectives from Practitioners and Regulators

Driven by new technological trends, the global financial services market is rapidly changing. Some participants from outside the traditional financial sector are using new business models to challenge current financial technology, existing business practices and regulations, develop consumer-centric products, and bring financial services to people who have not reached them before. However, these innovative changes are increasingly being questioned by regulators, doubting whether their supervision and supervision methods are suitable for continued development in the ever-changing financial service environment. How could we meet the ever-increasing Digital Finance Service (DFS) and subsequent national policy reforms?

In the meantime, under the influence of the COVID-19 epidemic, countries worldwide have adopted strict quarantine measures to restrict the flow of people and logistics, which has greatly increased the use of online consumption and mobile payment by consumers. A wave of disruptive and disintermediation changes has emerged in the financial technology environment, allowing smartphones, Internet of Things, mobile devices, and digital currencies (such as Bitcoin) to make payments, transactions, and purchases. The new application of sales has dramatically subverted the traditional financial service practices in the past. Establishing a financial supervision mechanism and promoting the innovation of financial technology will help the future development of RegTech in the field of corporate governance. How could we improve risk management, stabilize the financial system, and help to promote digital financial transactions and supervision while focusing on new technologies and applying them to financial services?
