Program Description: 

The Women and Housing and Finance 2018 Annual Symposium will focus on the impact of the global and rapidly growing applications of financial technology (FinTech) on financial services providers and their customers and how the industry regulators are responding to this transformation of financial services.  The annual symposium is intended to acquaint attendees with trends and advances in the FinTech industry and major issues for financial service providers to consider when evaluating their business models.  The annual symposium begins with a broad overview of FinTech – what is here and what’s to come - followed by panels examining the FinTech transformation from three different perspectives:  those of the financial services providers, consumers, and regulators.  The keynote speakers are intimately involved in the FinTech transformation.
