Fintech industry dialogue

21 and 22 May 2019
Eurotower, room ET C2.01, Frankfurt am Main

The purpose of this industry dialogue is to discuss issues arising from the use of fintech by banks. This exchange of views will feed into the fintech supervisory approach of the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM). The dialogue will be supported by keynote speeches and panel discussions involving senior representatives and specialists from supervisory authorities, banks and European and international bodies.

This event is envisaged to be the first in a series of dialogues with the industry which will facilitate information-sharing between banks and supervisors and contribute to the development of a common SSM approach to fintech supervision.
