Q3 FINOS FOCUS PROJECTS
Each quarter the FINOS Governing Board identifies quarterly focus projects to receive extra support from the FINOS team. We're pleased to share below this quarter's projects and encourage you to check them out and get involved.
OPEN SOURCE FINREG
In case you haven't already heard, we've kicked off a new initiative to bring more open source code, standards, and practices to the way the financial services industry meets regulatory requirements. We're calling it Open Source FinReg. Check out the website, sign up for updates and email us if you have questions, ideas, or want to get involved.
