FinReg

Regulation of FinTech and disruptive innovation are widely recognized that such FinTech developments have many benefits that increase the provision of financial products. However, it is also a challenges for financial regulators to balance the launch of FinTech innovation against ensuring that the operation can be done in a safe markets environment. One way is to apply AI to reshape the field of legal professional. AI in legal service can be applied in contract analytics, due diligence and e-discovery.

The seminars will explore different ways in which emerging technology in financial markets could be regulated without stifling innovation. Adopting appropriate regulatory measures in response to FinTech initiatives is of significant importance for Hong Kong to ensure it retains its position as a leading international financial centre.
