Overview

The Steering Committee welcomes up to 40 senior attorneys from leading law firms and in-house counsel from various FinTech companies and financial institutions active in the FinTech area who are at the forefront of regulation. Participation is drawn from both common and civil law jurisdictions across Europe, the UK and a few from the US. During the sessions, high-level discussions are conducted between legal counsel at these regulated entities, and the major law firms who advise them.

Using candid, seminar-style discussions at this annual meeting, the group shares the most pressing issues they face. Participants examine trends and developments in relevant jurisdictions — and specifically challenging cross-border and multi-jurisdictional examples — to learn how others address these problems and work together to identify solutions.

This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
