Since the financial crisis, innovation in the financial services industry has surged, with FinTech at the intersection of Wall Street and Market Street. These data-driven startups are easing payment processes, reducing fraud, saving users money, promoting financial planning and ultimately moving a giant industry forward. By using artificial intelligence and scalable web platforms, they are leveraging operational efficiencies to drive new business models. VC funding has tripled since 2008, and FinTech startups are poised to disrupt this massive multi-trillion dollar market. But questions remain as to whether this growth can continue, as regulation and security issues are causing concern.

Come hear our experts discuss the legal and policy hurdles that FinTech startups need to be successful, with an interactive discussion covering currency and lending issues, security and technology surrounding platform solutions, and the investors interested in funding the reinvention of the system.
