Estonian Bank invites private sector representatives to join in on developing finance innovation

The aim of the first finance innovation roundtable was to create a platform for discussions and dialogue to be held between public institutions and the private sector. The wider goal of the initiative is to support the sustainable development of financial innovation and increase cooperation across sectors.
In its first meeting, the group fixed principles for operation, setting goals for the upcoming year, and identified topics of interest such as digital currency, cross-border transactions, and payment systems, cyber security, crypto currency, big data, and challenger bank platforms.
Initiated by the Estonian Bank, the roundtable of finance innovation was gathered for the first time in Estonia this February. The working group includes the Financial Inspection, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, FinanceEstonia, Enterprise Estonia and KredEx. The private sector is represented by FinanceEstonia whose board member Henri Laupmaa (founder of Fundwise) is a proud Advisory Board member of Altfinator.
