Open Source in Finance Podcast: Financial Regulation Innovation - Setting the Scene for the Rest of 2022 - Jennifer Lassiter, Anna Wallace, Francesca Hopwood Road, Jane Gavronsky

September 23, 2022

In this first part of a two part series, we highlight financial regulation - what some might consider a dry subject, but FSI can't get get by without it. This first podcast is taken from a keynote panel from OSFF (Open Source in Finance Forum) from London '22. There are a lot of exciting things we're working on the FINOS Regulation Innovation Special Interest Group (SIG), and this panel discussion helps set the stage for where we believe financial regulation stands today, where we think it is going, and then will set us up for some work / announcements that will be coming out in December '22 around Reg, that you can get involved in now:

Episode show notes and transcript are available below.
