Law Symposium Tickets - Technological Innovation in Corporate Financing: Regulatory Challenges for the Fintech Era

The Centre for Commercial Law and Regulatory Studies (CLARS) at Monash University is hosting a symposium on Technological Innovation in Corporate Financing: Regulatory Challenges for the Fintech Era on November 12, 2018. The aim of this symposium is to explore some of these opportunities and challenges that Fintech presents to key actors: those involved in the financial sector (as broadly interpreted to include new entrants into the sector), those who rely on the sector to raise funds and the regulators involved in the process. Topics to be discussed include: 

  • Expansion of peer-to-peer and equity crowdfunding as a source of funding for start-ups and small-to-medium enterprises.
  • Use of blockchain technology for the purposes of fundraising, for instance, through ICOs.
  • Other technological financing innovations that are emerging and how these are promoting economic growth and development.
  • Approaches that regulators have used to oversee Fintech, including the growth of Regtech and the use of regulatory "sandboxes" to test financial innovations..
  • Considerations regarding the relationship between technical innovations in the financial sector to encourage growth and development versus the need to maintain financial stability.
  • The adoption of Fintech and Regtech solutions that are potentially global in scope in a context of increasing nationalism.
