Financial innovation refers to the creation of new financial or investment products, services, or processes. Recent financial innovations include crowdfunding, mobile banking technology, cryptocurrencies, and remittance technology. Moreover, tech innovations, such as quantum computing, can further revolutionize the industry. As with any form of innovation policymakers are attempting to develop an enabling environment to facilitate such innovation while simultaneously protecting individuals and firms from harm. We'll discuss how data governance, one part of such governance, relates to financial innovation.
