Regulation and Innovation in the Age of FinTech
22-23 March

There is a wealth of learning locked up in silos and this event will start to dismantle some of these silos, and begin to connect high-level practitioners, policy-makers and technical assistance specialists. In particular, we expect the event will present an opportunity for emerging markets, especially African regulators, to join the global conversation. Different to many events, it will include a bootcamp element and site visits, which will help to deepen the learning process.  This event will be held in partnership between FSD Africa, the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance and RegHub – a new firm specialising in technical assistance to regulators in emerging markets.
