In May 2017, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Chairman J. Christopher (Chris) Giancarlo announced the launch of LabCFTC as part of an effort to modernize the agency and serve as a focal point for grappling with unprecedented waves of financial technology innovation impacting markets. To lead the work, he appointed Daniel Gorfine the initiative’s Director and the agency’s Chief Innovation Officer.
In this Issue Brief, Director Gorfine outlines the CFTC’s Fintech Agenda, and shares a number of current and forthcoming projects that collectively provide a blueprint for the agency’s digital upgrade. Mr. Gorfine’s remarks are accompanied by a prologue by IIEL Faculty Director Chris Brummer.
