Event Details

Competition objectives have helped to shape regulatory intervention in financial services for a number of years, facilitating entry by a range of digital innovators, alone or in partnership with existing players. The heralded entry of big tech into finance promises further competition, innovation and potential for increased financial inclusion. However, this also raises new challenges for regulators in ensuring a level playing field, addressing regulatory arbitrage and managing potential trade-offs between financial stability, competition and data privacy concerns. 

This Roundtable will bring together leading officials, economists and senior  leaders from industry to discuss the impact of tech/fintech entrants in financial services markets to date and how regulation and antitrust enforcement can adapt to address future challenges. The Roundtable, run as an interactive webinar, will tackle these questions head on.

Event convened by The Competition Law Forum at the BIICL and Linklaters LLP
