Fintech Lab

To fully carry out its regulatory role in a digital environment, the AMF has created a fintech lab to help further its knowledge in new technologies and data science.

Testing and developing protypes in the fintech lab not only furthers our understanding of new technologies used in the industry, but also helps us identify ways we might apply those technologies in our own activities.

The AMF has implemented various tests and prototypes based on, among other things, development of a cryptographic token, machine learning and natural language processing.
