BPM FinTech Roundtable

Series Four: Consumer Protection Regulation – FinTech Friend or Foe? 01.14.16

As investment in the financial technology industry continue to rise, so too does regulatory interest in FinTech business models and other changes to consumer financial services generally. With FinTech companies and banks striving to deliver new services and experiences to consumers, do existing consumer protection regulations actually benefit consumers, or stifle innovation?

Join BPM and Reed Smith LLP for a keynote presentation and panel discussion exploring these issues. We invite Joseph Toms of Freedom Plus to share his perspective on whether existing consumer protection regulations actually benefit consumers and to what extent the regulatory framework stifles innovation or otherwise creates barriers to entry into the market, to the detriment of consumers.
