SEC Launches New Fintech Hub

The Securities and Exchange Commission today launched its new Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology, or FinHub. The FinHub is intended to facilitate the SEC’s engagement with innovators, developers and other stakeholders in the financial technology space.

Specifically, the FinHub will facilitate communication between industry and the SEC; relay information about the SEC’s fintech-related activities; engage the public through publications and events; act as a platform and clearinghouse for SEC staff to acquire and distribute fintech-related information within the agency; and serve as a liaison to other foreign and domestic international regulators.
