Panel: Tokenization – „Securitization done on Steroids“?

This is exactly what Jenny Johnson, CEO of Franklin Templeton, purported in October 2023. In fact, it is not only neatly regulated securitization that is playing an increasingly important role in Digital Lending. Now tokenization through blockchain creates additional appealing financing and investment options as well as ways to manage risk efficiently. The development is in the best interest of product diversity and the EU Capital Markets Union. But what technological risks are associated with this change? Do we run in danger of undermining financial stability by tokenizing illiquid assets what may creates the illusion of liquidity where it does not actually exist? Is there after all a need to regulate digital financial steroids more strictly?

Fireside Chat: Access to Finance – What Role shall Data and AI Play in Mitigating Disparities??

By using modern credit technology Digital Lenders have been able to go beyond. Additional risk data and more recently AI allow to serve the unserved among consumers – who might otherwise have been overlooked. Thus, Fintechs do their bit for the supply of credit in Europe. But how deep is it worth to drill into the customer at all? Which role plays data quality? Can a fair line be determined where potential harm outweighs benefits?

Breakout Session: Jumping the Gun – Fintechs between Regulatory Overload, Supervisory Arbitrage and the Cost Dilemma

The level of granularity in European financial regulation skyrocketed from the first market frameworks, e.g. the Investment Services Directive in 1993, to holistic and directly applicable rulebooks such as MiCAR in 2023. The inevitable trend in European financial market policy towards maximum-harmonizing regulations has long-since become reality, contrasting a regulatory overload the industry must cope with. Innovative business models struggle to overcome entry barriers. Once in the market, regulatory transition and maintenance costs are pressurizing. No easy way out? What can become key?
