ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Helping FinTechs prepare for the regulations of tomorrow is the focus of an afternoon briefing, Growing a FinTech Enterprise: Legal and Business Frameworks, which is part of the Bloomberg Next series. The event takes place at the Washington, D.C. offices of Bloomberg Government the afternoon of Wednesday, November 16 and is underwritten by Sullivan & Cromwell.

"Insight into current enforcement action, coupled with the outcome of the recent election, provides FinTech leaders a window into the regulations of tomorrow," said Mike MacKay, President, Cross Platform Businesses, Bloomberg BNA. "New regulations will most likely have a dramatic impact on FinTech, and industry leaders, as well as those responsible for regulating FinTech, will frame the issues to pay attention to as we move into 2017 and beyond at this post-election briefing."
The event begins with a panel on priorities in the next administration and 115th Congress related to consumer protection, cybersecurity and risk management — in an atmosphere of significant government regulation — which may impact FinTech's continued growth. The second panel will focus on opportunities presented by the industry's evolution and how legacy financial intuitions and startups are finding ways to collaborate and fuel growth.
