Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to join the School of Law for a lecture featuring Andrea Seidt, the Ohio Securities Commissioner with the Ohio Department of Commerce in the Division of Securities.
Seidt will present “Technology in the Securities Industry: Promoting Innovation Without Compromising Investor Protection” Monday, Feb. 12, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Moot Courtroom (Room A59).
This lecture will focus on the proliferation of fintech, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies as observed in the securities industry. Seidt will discuss how digital assets, artificial intelligence and algorithmic investing platforms have transformed investing in the modern age.
While these new technologies deliver many benefits and have the potential to expand market access and reduce costs, these technologies can be misused to exploit unsophisticated and vulnerable investors. Commissioner Seidt will highlight how these technologies fit into recent policy proposals and how they are being approached in state and federal examination and enforcement initiatives.
At the conclusion of the lecture, the audience will be invited to share views on whether and how regulatory policies should be flexed at the state or federal level to promote technological innovation without compromising market integrity and oversight.
