The Global Credit Union Podcast – Episode 33: WOCCU’s 2024 Global Regulatory Update
MADISON, WI (January 18, 2024) — A preview of what credit unions can expect international standard setters and national-level regulators to prioritize this year is featured on Episode 33 of The Global Credit Union Podcast.
Erin O’Hern, World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) International Advocacy and Regulatory Counsel, and Andrew Price, WOCCU Senior Vice President and International Advocacy and General Counsel, discuss WOCCU’s 2024 Global Regulatory Update, which they co-wrote.
This year’s edition of the annual publication focuses on “Financial Inclusion Through Equitable Innovation”, examining the idea that international standard setting bodies and national-level regulators must consider the institutions offering digital financial products and services as much as they examine how those deliverables are offered when contemplating new compliance requirements. They also discuss other regulatory issues covered in the Update, such as as payments, cybersecurity, sustainable finance and AML/CFT.
