A FINancial supervision and TECHnology compliance training programme (FINTECH)

While innovation in finance is not a new concept, the focus on technological innovations and its pace have increased significantly. Fintech solutions that make use of big data analytics, artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies are currently introduced at an unprecedented rate. These new technologies are changing the nature of the financial industry, creating many opportunities for fintechs to offer more inclusive access to financial services (European Commission, 2018). The advantages notwithstanding, fintech solutions leave the door open for many challenges such as cyber-attacks, underestimation of creditworthiness, potential for fraud, compliance concerns, consumer and investor protection issues and disrupted market integrity, which represent central points of interest for regulators and supervisory bodies.
