This year, Fintech Week will be supported by the Institute of International Economic Law at Georgetown University Law Center, the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), FiscalNote, the Democratic Republic of Italy, Davis Polk LLP and the Institute for Financial Markets (IFM). In recognition of DC. Fintech Week, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission will hold Fintech Forward, its annual fintech event — to round out a robust week of discovery and debate.

Fireside chats and keynotes from top-level executives at US, UK and other international regulatory agencies will enhance the program. Event participants also will have meaningful networking opportunities to exchange information and to continue the dialogue after the conference and throughout the year.
