Technology is reshaping the way financial markets operate. FinTech, a term broadly used to describe innovation in financial services enabled by technology has attracted much attention among market participants, regulators and policy-makers alike.

ICMA’s engagement spans (i) primary markets, (ii) secondary markets, and (iii) repo and collateral markets, with a focus on market electronification ie the use of technology across the securities lifecycle. While the level of adoption of technology solutions varies in each of those areas, the advent of cutting edge technologies such as distributed ledger technology or artificial intelligence has the potential to impact market practice and market structure significantly.

FinTech and market electronification are addressed through ICMA’s various committees, working groups and work streams as well as through bilateral discussions with member firms and technology providers. ICMA seeks to mainstream relevant FinTech developments and market electronification through all of its initiatives, activities, and fora.

A monthly newsletter is sent to FinTech contacts, sign up to the mailing list by ticking the FinTech box (ICMA members only) or contact us.
