After working in traditional finance for over 10 years, discussing the regulation of Fintech in the LLM(CR) programme triggered my interest and curiosity in a rapidly evolving industry where I now find myself working. I believe it is essential that regulators and industry groups collaborate to set the proper standards and best practices to move the Fintech industry forward, and the LLM(CR) programme has prepared me with the necessary foundation to contribute to that collaboration.
