Finance, Technology and Regulation in 2021

In this episode of Looking Back Looking Forward – the first of 2021 and the first of our second series – looking forward, Professor Douglas Arner talks about the key themes for FinTech, RegTech and digital finance in 2021. Looking back, Professor Arner highlights how 2020 marked the key trends for digital finance over the next decade: technology, sustainability, and an ongoing tension between globalisation and fragmentation. Looking at these in 2021, the focus will be on Digital Finance Platforms such as Ant, on normalisation of cryptocurrencies and digital assets, on building better infrastructure including RegTech/SupTech and central bank digital currencies, and on the role of data and cybersecurity.

These concerns and possible approaches are highlighted in a new paper: ‘Digital Finance, COVID-19 and Existential Sustainability Crises: Setting the Agenda for the 2020s’, available at: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3783605

Tech Priorities for Financial Institutions in 2021 (Episode 1) | SFF 2020

As digital transformation accelerated, new risks emerge in the areas of operations, credit assessment and cyber fraud. However, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and persistent uncertainty in the global economy continues to pose challenging obstacles in early planning, forecasting and assumptions. The challenges are compounded with the intense competition from new market entrants. While Digital Banks and Big Techs are introducing radical technology and novel solutions to target the unbanked market, they are poised to disrupt the captive banked market previously dominated by the incumbent financial institutions. Financial institutions must break down the traditional barriers in their rapid move to scale digitally. This is hardly a choice. How far can they evolve and test their business model? What are the tech priorities needed to stay ahead of the curve? How would the emerging technologies address the new risk models and stress scenarios? Join us in this panel to find out more.
