Hosted By: NERA Economic Consulting

Fintech is offering a host of convenient new ways for consumers to engage in financial transactions. However, the explosive rise of new payment technologies and trading platforms, cryptocurrencies and blockchain, and online lending are creating new challenges and questions for competition and regulatory authorities in the US and abroad. NERA Economic Consulting is launching a new seminar series exploring the various ways digital disruption continues to impact the way we view antitrust in today’s economy.

We hope you will join us for an exclusive breakfast CLE seminar on the antitrust implications of fintech in Chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s The Lambs Club restaurant. You’ll enjoy a delightful breakfast in an intimate setting, while expert competition, banking, and securities economists, lawyers, and practitioners explore and lead discussions on some of the most interesting antitrust issues of the day. 

Discussion Topics:

  • Recent developments in payments, including real-time payment applications
  • Possible antitrust economic issues of payment and trading platforms
  • Potential antitrust concerns involving collaboration among fintech firm
  • The application of multi-sided market analysis in a fintech environment

You’ll leave with a thorough understanding of how these disruptive technologies could be affected by the decisions of courts and regulatory bodies, and gain thoughtful approaches to addressing the concerns of regulators and litigants.
