Technology has long been the engine driving capital market efficiency—both for investors in the markets, and for the capital market infrastructure providers that operate the exchanges and other trading venues, central counterparties, securities depositories, index providers, and data and analytics companies. More lately, fintechs are bringing new technologies to market even faster and with a greater impact. While it is widely recognized that fintech will have a significant influence on the industry, many remain unsure of which technologies to adopt and to what degree, and how best to engage and interact with fintech companies.
The role and importance of regulation and supervision of capital markets have grown in the past decade owing to these changes in the regulatory environment, in the investor landscape and in customer behavior. Therefore, it is important that regulators and supervisors assess the adequacy of their current regulatory frameworks to timely and appropriately respond to these innovations and mitigate new sources of risks. This program will provide participants with the tools to face these challenges successfully and thrive in a constantly evolving financial system.
Participants will also hear from experts and regulators across different jurisdictions who will illustrate inventive approaches to dealing with the root causes of financial crises. Each training session will be highly practical and interactive, incorporating the use of case studies, group activities, and a crisis simulation exercise to reinforce learning.
The program is designed for mid- to senior-level staff and managers involved in regulatory and supervisory activities. Participants should have at least three years of working experience in financial sector supervision, analysis or policy, and be proficient in English.
