Even as the hype dissipates, it is clear that blockchain, AI, and other technologies are already changing financial services and capital markets – and have huge potential for further disruption. Government regulation, especially the highly complicated structures of regulation around banking and securities may be impeding innovation. But even as reforms are being proposed, some innovators are complying and thriving within the current frameworks. How are they doing this?Featuring leading FinTech and RegTech innovators in the Bay Area, this half-day seminar will explore the interface between innovation and regulation, with a focus on what works in three areas: Moving Money, Raising Money, and Managing Money (and Risk).

|12:45 pm||Moving Money: Processing Payments and Transferring Funds
FinTech is making it possible to process payments and move funds at lower cost and higher velocity than traditional banking. Federal chartering initiatives, for example, may open new possibilities, but reform faces resistance from the state regulators. This panel will examine the interplay among banking regulation, proposed reforms, and successful innovation.
|2:00 pm||Raising Money: ICOs, Tokens, and Capital Markets
A remarkably large amount of capital is being raised by ICOs, tokens, and other blockchain-based innovations, in the United States and globally. This panel will explore how FinTech is disrupting capital markets and how ICOs and tokens operate within the framework of numerous federal, state and foreign regulations.
|3:45 pm||Managing Money: Easing Operational Regulatory and Legal Costs
Companies face significant legal and compliance costs in their day-to-day operations, especially in the financial services industry. These costs are often prohibitively high for smaller enterprises. This panel will examine how technological innovation can reduce costs while producing better legal and compliance outcomes.
