ICMA publishes paper on Regulatory approaches to FinTech and innovation in capital markets
7 September 2018 The rise of FinTech has sparked increasing interest from financial regulators. Applications of distributed ledger technology, machine learning, big data analytics or cloud computing, to name a few, have significant potential to alter business models and impact the functioning of financial markets. In response, financial regulators have adopted different approaches to address FinTech and innovation in their respective jurisdictions.

The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of financial regulators’ approaches to FinTech, identify relevant use cases for capital markets, notably cross-border debt capital markets, and provide a sense of the direction of travel. The paper is based on publicly available information and covers selected regulatory initiatives across 26 jurisdictions within Europe, Asia and North America.
