FinTech Legal is a half-day workshop designed to provide FinTech entrepreneurs, investors, attorneys, and other professionals with a general introduction to the unique and sometimes counter-intuitive ways that finance innovation is regulated in the United States. In addition to an overview of the basic structure of U.S. bank regulation and the key government regulators, the program will examine the specific regulatory frameworks that apply to core banking and finance activities most relevant to financial technologies, including payments, lending and consumer protection issues. The program will also address the regulatory implications of providing services to banks, the emerging debate over a special “FinTech” bank charter, and the unique cultural differences and challenges that come with operating within a highly-regulated industry.
