Message from H.M. Queen Máxima of the Netherlands
Friday, December 7, 2018
Toronto Centre is pleased to have received a special message from Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands for our International Conference on Leveraging Fintech for Inclusive and Stable Financial Systems.
innovations are creating new solutions for customers with financial services
designed around their needs which can help them improve their lives. As the
UNSGSA, I am very pleased that the Toronto Centre is bringing together
regulators and supervisors, development partners, and global standard setters
to share experiences of how FinTech can play a transformative role driving
financial inclusion while maintaining financial stability. This type of
dialogue is needed to share the experiences of regulators who have implemented
new policy initiatives to unleash innovation while mitigating potential risks.
Going forward, it will be important for partners, such as the Toronto Centre,
to offer capacity building support to regulators and supervisors, so their
staff are familiar with new technologies and they can incorporate innovation
into existing supervisory tools and design new regulatory initiatives.
- Her Majesty
Queen Máxima of the Netherlands
Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development
(UNSGSA) and Honorary Patron of the G20’s Global Partnership for Financial
