Moonshot: Transforming Financial Regulation

What if regulation could be issued directly in computer code? UK regulators tested this daring idea - and when it worked the room erupted in cheers! Like Edison’s lightbulb, this was a ‘moonshot’, signaling a new digital era for regulation. How does the regulatory ecosystem innovate when regulation itself is designed to be careful, deliberate and risk-averse? How will it address new cryptocurrencies, AI and machine learning? Today, as financial services rapidly becomes digitally-native, regulatory systems are starting to do the same. Meet the pioneers leading the global modernization and digitization of our regulatory system. Learn about what they are doing and how their work is transforming the financial system - and with it the quality of people’s lives throughout the world.
