Is regulation blocking competitive innovation?

Nothing is more tightly regulated than the financial industry. But despite an ongoing regulatory tsunami out of the EU over the last 5 years, we still find a lack of regulation when it comes to parts of the fintech industry. An industry characterised by innovative start-ups that "challenge the established players". Is it the absence of regulation that makes these challengers so innovative, or are they creating new products and services in spite of it?

We invite you to an informal talk between Aksel Mjøs (Norwegian School of Economics) and Linn Hoel Ringvoll (Kameo) that seeks to explore this question in depth and examine whether regulation hinders or contributes to more innovation in the market. Innovation that ultimately is meant to benefit consumers through increased competition and options.
