The ACPR Fintech-Innovation unit is the new team, directly attached to its Secretary General, which is in charge of Fintech and financial innovation. It has been created on the 1st of June 2016 so as to be the point of entry of financial innovative project holders in the banking and insurance sectors. The unit coordinates with other ACPR directorates, as well as, upon necessity, with Banque de France and French financial market supervisory authority (AMF). In addition to this priority mission, the Fintech-Innovation unit assesses the challenges, risks and opportunities related to the digital transformation and technological innovation in the financial sector (artificial intelligence, blockchain, regtech etc.). Against this background, the Fintech-Innovation unit actively contributes to international and European working groups dealing with Fintech and innovation. Finally, together with the Fintech division of the AMF, it steers the Fintech Forum, the body for consultation and dialogue with the French FinTech industry.
