Fintech Week – Washington, DC
November 5, 2018 - November 8, 2018
During Fintech Week, thought leaders from fintech firms across the country—from Amazon to Zcash—describe their business, and explain how their services intersect with markets for a global audience consisting of policymakers, market participants, lawyers, and thought-leaders. This year, an international array of regulators—from the Chariman of the CFTC to the Co-Director of Colombia’s central bank—will in turn lay out their perspective on the future of fintech regulatory policy at Georgetown, the IMF and on Capitol Hill.
Fintech Week’s origins lay in the unveiling of the OCC fintech charter by then Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry at Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law. Since then the IIEL has been a locus for some of Washington’s most vaunted and high profile discussions of fintech policy and innovation. Fintech Week’s founder and the Institute’s director is Professor Chris Brummer.
DC Fintech Week is free of charge.
