ICMA Future Leaders Fintech Working Group Podcast Series | Episode 2 | The European regulatory landscape, CMU and digitalisation
ICMA Future Leaders (IFL) launched a Fintech working group earlier in 2021 to look into developments in Fintech including digital assets, blockchain transactions in capital markets, the evolution of securities technology, among others, to support ICMA’s overall role in this fast evolving area. As part of the IFL working group’s activities, it has organised a series of podcasts with market experts focusing on digital ledger technology or DLT.
In this episode, IFL’s Sven Renders and MEP Johan Van Overtveldt talk about the importance of completing the CMU, the benefits of the new DLT pilot regime regulation for Europe’s capital markets and the added value of a digital Euro.
