Corporate Law, Governance and Capital Markets Research Group
School of Law, Trinity College Dublin
Founded in 1740, Trinity College Dublin’s School of Law, is one of the leading Law Schools in Europe. The Corporate Law, Governance and Capital Markets Group in the School of Law is organising a one symposium on addressing the global challenge of responsive FinTech regulation.
The symposium aims at examining the regulatory challenges posed by financial technology. Cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, smart contracts, robo-advisors, initial coin offerings are challenging incumbent practices and firms. The evolving field of FinTech gives rise to new investor protection and financial stability risks. Regulators around the world are seeking to devise an optimal regulatory response, which addresses the challenges posed by FinTech without stifling innovation. Contributors to the symposium will seek to assess the benefits offered by financial technology, the dangers posed and the optimal regulatory approach.
The symposium will take place on Friday 8 March 2019 at Trinity Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin. Trinity College Dublin was established in 1592 and its historic campus is situated in Dublin city centre within easy access from Dublin airport.
