The Treasury Identity Forum will focus on the critical role of legal identity for financial inclusion, economic development, and anti-money laundering/counter financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) safeguards, and the development of new technology identification/authentication solutions to help achieve these goals.


The event will help federal functional regulators and U.S government policymakers, the international development and financial technology (FinTech) communities, and other key stakeholders better understand (1) the elements and underlying functional purposes of legal identity for accessing the regulated financial system; (2) the need for digital identity solutions for the digital economy and digital society; (3) the availability of new technologies, to provide identification/authentication systems that address financial inclusion and AML/CFT needs; and (4)  the requirements of the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act and international AML/CFT standards.  The Forum provides an important opportunity for leading public and private stakeholders to work together to advance the development of “smart” identity solutions and a smart regulatory framework to accommodate them.


The event is limited to 100 thought leaders involved with legal identity in the financial sector.  Invitations are not transferrable.  Participants will include U.S. government and international financial regulators, academic and industry technologists, identity provider entrepreneurs, International Financial Institutions, the United Nations, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Secretariat, major development nongovernmental organizations, and U.S. law enforcement officials. 


The event is closed to press and will be off-the-record.
