Financial Technology (FinTech) poses both opportunities and challenges for traditional financial institutions and their regulators. On the one hand, FinTech companies may be competitors for banks’ loan and payment customers; on the other hand, FinTech companies may partner with banks to increase banks’ efficiency. Regulators, for their part, must decide on activity-based vs. entity-based regulation, or, indeed, whether or not to regulate at all. This course is a blend of financial stability, financial supervision, and payments topics.

Target Participants: The course is aimed at staff of central banks and monetary authorities from the financial stability, financial supervision, or payments areas, with two to three years of professional experience and responsibility. Those responsible for the development of regulatory policy are especially encouraged to join.


To give participants a thorough conceptual grounding in FinTech and introduce them to the most important products and services that may pose threats to the profitability of traditional financial institutions or the stability of the financial sector, and to generate thought and discussion about smart regulation of the FinTech environment.
