The Week Ahead: Examining the Fintech Landscape

shutterstock_461973784Tuesday, the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs will meet in an open session for a hearing titled “Examining the Fintech Landscape.”

Governor Lael Brainard, Member of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors, said in a speech at the Conference on Financial Innovation that Fintech puts financial change at consumers’ fingertips and gives consumers and small business more real-time control over their finances, but the potential risks and the regulatory environment are subjects that need to be looked into further.

“We should be attentive to the potential social benefits of these new technologies, prepared to make the necessary regulatory adjustments if their safety and integrity are proven and their potential benefits found to be in the public interest, and vigilant to ensure risks are well understood and managed,” Brainard said.
