Milan, 24 June 2021
Assofintech, the Italian Association for fintech, insurtech and propotech, is pleased to announce the establishment of its Advisory Board, a think tank of experts in finance and technology that will support the activities of the Association in its project to support the development and growth of the sector in Italy. The Advisory Board is chaired by Giuseppe Vegas, former president of Consob and today an active investor in fintech startups, as well as a member of the Board of Directors of Assofintech itself.
At the first meeting of the Advisory Board, Vegas declared:
"Fintech should not just be seen as a fad phenomenon affecting the startup world. It is much more and must be used by banks, intermediaries and more generally by all those who work in the financial industry to create value and efficiency in their activities. AssoFintech is an association and as such it must create a path for member companies, which can also be expanded abroad. This is why our working group is important."
Not only that. Vegas added: "The activity of the Association and mainly of us members of the Advisory Board must also be to be present at European level to enter the legislative debate. For example in the one related to the regulation of cryptocurrencies. The times of information technology are fast, a coordinated action with other countries is fundamental".
