CFTC Posts Fintech Event Agenda

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has published the agenda for Fintech Forward 2018: Innovation, Regulation and Education, conference taking place in DC next week.

The conference is a collaboration of CFTC’s LabCFTC and the Office of Customer Education and Outreach (OCEO).

As part of the event, the CFTC has announced a Meet the Regulators session which will involve the following agencies:

  • CFTC
  • BCFP, Brazil
  • CVM,
  • FRB
  • FTC,
  • NFA
  • SEC

The CFTC says this will allow conference attendees and the public to learn more about each regulator’s respective jurisdiction and innovation engagement initiatives as well as discuss FinTech topics.

While the conference is at capacity, meeting with the regulators at CFTC headquarters does not require a conference registration.

The conference is scheduled for October 3rd and 4th at the CFTC HQ in Washington, DC. The even will also be live streamed via the CFTC’s homepage.
