Between 2011 and 2015, global investment in FinTech increased eightfold. Resulting from the use of enabling digital technologies, new products and processes are being developed by “traditional” providers and by ever-rising numbers of FinTech startups. While policy-makers are gradually creating the necessary conditions to strengthen this digital transformation of financial services, numerous policy issues and unanswered questions remain. Against that background, CEPS, ECRI and ECMI are jointly organising their Annual Conference on “Developing the FinTech ecosystem: the challenges of regulation, innovation and digitalisation”.

The use of central counterparties (CCPs) has increased markedly in recent years. The decision to shift from bilateral to central clearing of standardised over-the-counter derivatives concentrates risks in a couple of CCPs, which has potentially negative effects on the financial sector and the broader economy in the unlikely event that a CCP fails.
