Insights from China: New Regulatory Challenges and Opportunities in Digital Finance
Description: The explosive growth of digital finance in China has broadened access to basic financial services. Online lending via peer networks has grown tenfold in the past two years by matching a new generation of borrowers with investors lured by the promise of higher returns. But the collapse of the online lending platform Ezubao, which allegedly defrauded investors of $7.6 billion, exposed the huge risks in this new market. The Chinese government is developing a new regulatory framework designed to protect consumers using digital finance, in what could prove a model for other countries seeking to foster innovation while limiting consumer risks. This video premiered at the Third GPFI Conference on Standard-Setting Bodies and Innovative Financial Inclusion, hosted by the Financial Stability Institute at the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, on 26–27 October 2016.
