C-Suite Roundtable with Nikhil Rathi, Chief Executive, Financial Conduct Authority
This event is intended specifically for C-Suite roles, attendance is by invitation.
Please note attendee numbers at roundtables are strictly limited to ensure everyone is able to contribute to the conversation. Invitees are carefully selected in line with The Whitehall & Industry Group's charitable purpose, to bring a range of views and perspectives.
In this invitation only roundtable Nikhil Rathi, CEO of the Financial Conduct Authority and peers will discuss the need to collaborate across regulators, central government and private sector to support growth. The discussion will focus on how the sectors can work together to support innovation, create organisations that are fit to deliver on technological change, especially around the use of data and AI, and what the medium- and long-term risks and opportunities are and how to work together to capitalise for the common good.
The core questions for consideration will be:
- How can we work together to promote innovation, including Early and High Growth Oversight? Where are the regulatory gaps and where will regulation add value?
- How should organisations across the sectors collaborate to address future challenges and opportunities, especially as they relate to data, digital infrastructure and AI?
- How can we realign our organisations to address the above? Are there global comparisons?
