Developing and emerging market countries face critical financial sector challenges in the current global environment, and many are turning to new financial technologies (FinTech) for possible solutions. From facilitating cross border payments to increasing small business lending, FinTech has enormous potential to transform the developing world – but do the benefits outweigh the possible risks to economic stability?
Please join us for a panel discussion exploring the practical applications of FinTech in developing and emerging market countries, ranging from mobile payments to cryptocurrencies. The panel will also consider the broader public policy implications of these innovations, and strategies for countries to address the potential risks. A reception will follow.

Former Chairman, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
