英国央行宣布建立专属金融科技中心

昨日,英格兰银行副行长Dave Ramsden宣布,英国央行将成立一个金融科技中心,并希望借助这个专门机构加强英国央行与行业机构的互动,推动英国金融产业创新,帮助英国经济重振活力。

为了在“脱欧”之后保证在金融产业的领导地位,英国政府表示将对加密货币和区块链技术等金融科技相关产业保持开放监管态度。

Ramsden表示,虽然这些技术会带来不小的挑战,但是其在推动金融活动提高效率和适应能力,促进分布式和多样化支付系统方面具备巨大的潜力。

就在不久前,英国财政大臣Philip Hammond 宣布英国将推出一系列新的金融科技战略措施,而本次英国央行的金融科技中心正是其中一项。

 

The Bank of England (BoE) will set up a fintech hub to monitor developments that could help boost the UK's weak productivity levels.

"We have set up a new fintech hub that will sit at the heart of the Bank, to consider both how the Bank understands and how it applies fintech, relevant to its mission," deputy governor Dave Ramsden said in a speech today.

He said the hub will be a central point of contact for the fintech sector to engage with the Bank, and it will play an active role in a new taskforce that was announced earlier today by the government.

Britain is seeking to maintain its grip on the industry as it leaves the EU, and Ramsden said as a member of the monetary policy committee, he must stay open minded about the way fintech could impact the UK's economy.

"The defining trend of the last ten years has been the weakness of productivity. Given the size of the financial sector in the UK, I can see fintech driving competition and a pick-up in productivity in the medium term."

He added that he will remain open minded about the risks and opportunities associated with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

"Adapting these [blockchain] technologies for the demands of the financial system poses significant challenges.

"But the distributed ledger and cryptographic technologies used by crypto-assets have the future potential to deliver benefits both to the financial system and to the economy it serves, including increasing efficiency and resilience and contributing to a more distributed and diverse payments system," Ramsden said.

Ramsden's speech followed the unveiling of a new fintech strategy for the UK by Philip Hammond today.
