ICMA FinTech Advisory Committee (FinAC)

In light of the pace of technological change, the ICMA Board decided in 2019 to expand the remit of the Board Sub-Group on Technology, tap into the expertise of ICMA’s broad membership, and provide guidance on ICMA’s work through the creation of the FinTech Advisory Committee (FinAC).

In line with ICMA’s mission statement to promote resilient and well-functioning international debt capital markets, the purpose of the ICMA FinTech Advisory Committee is to:

  • Provide guidance on ICMA’s engagement on FinTech
  • Provide transparent advice with the aim to promote straight-through-processing (STP), common and open standards for data and lifecycle events and machine-readability across primary, secondary, repo and collateral markets.
  • Foster the dialogue with industry stakeholders and regulators on regulatory as well as legislative FinTech developments impacting international capital markets.  

Alongside ICMA’s commitment to green, social and sustainability markets, the ICMA FinTech Advisory Committee will work to ensure engagement and advice is applicable to and supportive of the move towards more sustainable financial markets.

The ICMA FinTech Advisory Committee is currently chaired by Armin Peter, Global Head of Syndicate at UBS. Gabriel Callsen (ICMA) is acting as Secretary of the Committee.
