Increasing digitalisation and social media are not only changing how financial products are marketed and distributed, but also how retail investors interact with financial products and services. Nonetheless, these developments bring various risks for investors, and challenges for regulators on how to adapt their regulatory and enforcement approaches to the rapidly changing digitalisation trends and online activities. In conjunction with IOSCO’s World Investor Week 2022, this webinar aims to review regulatory and market-wide implications of the evolving digitalisation landscape, including online offering trends and how regulators are responding. Areas of discussion include ways in which firms leverage on behavioural techniques for online marketing, regulatory issues and gaps arising, and approaches to financial literacy in response to these challenges.
