The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness (CCMC) and the Chamber Technology Engagement Center hosted a discussion Tuesday focused on the evolving world of fintech and the complex regulatory landscape that comes with it.

ACA International’s Vice President and Senior Counsel, Federal Advocacy Leah Dempsey attended the event to remain current on the topic, in particular to hear from the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection’s Director of the Office of Innovation Paul Watkins.

The discussion also focused on how policymakers can approach fintech in a way that fosters innovation and growth, while maintaining protections for consumers and businesses, according to a news release from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
