What we do

  • We provide capacity building and education programmes for regulators and policymakers.
  • We promote evidence-based policymaking by supporting the dissemination of CCAF research.
  • We provide the platform for the CCAF and the global community of regulators to collaborate and share knowledge.

Programmes we offer

Cambridge Fintech and Regulatory Innovation (CFTRI) programme

The CFTRI programme is for financial regulators and policymakers working in central banks, securities organisations, and government ministries. Over 870 regulators and policymakers from 200 institutions and 130 countries have successfully completed the programme.

The continued strength and value of the CFTRI programme is that it provides global regulators with the latest insights and understanding of fintech and regulatory innovation.
