Why FDiTech


The FDIC was created in 1933 to maintain stability and public confidence in the nation's financial system. Over the last century, the FDIC has evolved to address emerging risks within the financial services sector and carry out its insurance, supervisory, and consumer protection responsibilities.

FDiTech marks a new chapter in the agency’s continued evolution and efforts to ensure safety and soundness in today’s financial market place. Innovative and transformative technologies are rapidly transforming the way banks serve their customers.

Data is the new capital. The question for industry is how to best utilize data and technology to meet consumer demands. The question for regulators is how to allow industry to do so while maintaining safety, soundness, and consumer protection. FDiTech will bridge that gap.

We are on a mission to promote the adoption of innovative technologies across the financial services sector.
