Fintech, Securities & Regulation

This track explores the use for Blockchain in the Financial Services industry, hearing advice and insight from bankers, insurers, and businesses overhauling their finance systems. It will delve into blockchain solutions within the financial services and the struggles banks are having with security and regulation. We will also dip into the Crypto world looking at the tighter regulations emerging and the rise of the STO. Will using blockchain technology in the financial capital markets to build a new infrastructure have benefits that outweigh the risks? Hear from the experts in these fields on their view of the marketplace.

The European Financial Transparency Gateway: How blockchain can help European regulators

The European Financial Transparency Gateway (EFTG) is a pilot project at the initiative of DG FISMA, funded by the European Parliament, and with the objective of furthering the Capital Markets Union by increasing financial transparency and facilitating investor access to regulated financial information, in line with the Transparency Directive (Directive 2013/50/EU) and the EEAP regulation (Commission Delegated Regulation 2016/1437).

DG FISMA, supported by DG CNECT, decided that blockchain technology could bring distinct benefits and help address specific challenges facing this initiative, especially by clarifying concerns related to data control, liability and access rights.

Unlike classical IT architectures, a blockchain-based solution was expected to provide and maintain a secure, trustable link between data and actors in the system.

Find out how, beyond unique business functionalities, the blockchain-based implementation proved to also be cheaper and faster to develop and deploy than a custom-built system.
