The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced that its Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology (FinHub) will hold virtual peer-to-peer meet-ups.
The SEC said the FinHub staff recognizes the challenges and difficulties with in-person meetings in the midst of COVID-19. FinHub staff seeks to continue industry interactions to help inform regulatory approaches and engage on particular projects and issues.
FinHub is expected to host a series of “thematically-based virtual P2P meet-ups” over the next few months.
The first theme will be regulatory technology or Regtech. The FinHub staff is inviting industry engagement concerning these technologies.
Anyone working on Regtech solutions or implementations are encouraged to engage with FinHub as a part of this initiative. The Regtech-focused virtual P2Ps will take place the week of July 6, 2020.
