Money20/20 USA Features the Biggest Names in Regulation

Meet the Politicians and the Policymakers at Money20/20 USA

October 19, 2023 - LAS VEGAS - Money20/20, the world’s leading fintech show, and the place where money does business, will cast a wider lens on regulation at the upcoming US show in Las Vegas Oct. 23-25.

Recent events have increased the amount of regulatory involvement and scrutiny of the fintech space. Money20/20 USA’s Washington Explained Summit on Sunday, Oct. 22, brings together the politicians and the policymakers where the audience will learn from some of the leading observers and prognosticators about what the twists and turns of financial regulation will mean and what to expect in 2024 and beyond.

Sessions include:

  • Ramifications of the Legislation on Digital Assets: with Sheila Warren, Crypto Council for Innovation, Allison Behuniak, U.S. House Committee on Financial Services, and Andrew Gallucci, Circle.
  • Let's Talk about the CFPB: with Ashwin Vasan, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Rachel Morrissey, Money20/20
  • The Sausage Making: Politics and Policy in Financial Regulation with The Honorable Wiley Nickel, U.S. House of Representatives, NC; Chris Brummer, Georgetown University Law Center; Elad Roisman, Cravath, Swaine & Moore LLP, and Stephen Sikes, Public.

“I’m excited to join Money20/20 in Las Vegas for a panel discussion on the politics of financial regulation, “ said Congressman Wiley Nickel, Member of the House Financial Services Committee. “I came to Congress to get things done, and on the Financial Services Committee we’ve made significant progress in achieving bipartisan results. I look forward to discussing the bipartisan Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act and all the work we’re doing to regulate the digital asset industry to encourage innovation here in the US.”

“As important as the rules and regulations are to the financial services industry, the real process for how policies are created is poorly understood — particularly by technologists and founders in the space,” said Stephen Sikes, COO at Public. “I am honored to moderate a much-needed conversation with some of Washington DC’s smartest regulators, legislators, and thinkers about the inside playbook of how these policies are shaped and what is to come."

Other notable speakers include Hester M. Peirce, Securities and Exchange Commissioner on cryptocurrency regulation and market structure, and Michael J. Hsu, Acting Comptroller of the Currency.

“I have spent my career trying to make a difference in financial services and I finally landed on the fact that nothing matters more than the rules we make that underlie every decision made in our industry. We as an industry have a responsibility to focus more on what's happening in Washington and we at Money20/20 are making it a priority. The fact that regulation happens to be one of the most interesting things happening in the world right now is just a perk,” said Zach Pettet, US Content Director at Money20/20.

This year’s full agenda has been designed to inspire, address the challenges facing consumers, and drive the news that evolves the industry – from AI, digital assets to regulation and market structure.
