  • Upcoming thought leadership: AI in financial services 2.0: Managing machines in an evolving legal landscape

We are seeing increased engagement from regulators across the globe with respect to artificial intelligence, including in the financial services arena where AI is already having a profound impact. On Wednesday 22 September we will be launching an updated report, originally published in September 2019, in which we explore developments in both the existing and evolving regulation of AI, and key legal issues that arise for businesses deploying this technology. This continues to be a complex and evolving area requiring a multidisciplinary legal approach which our global fintech team is perfectly positioned to deliver.
