Environmental, social governance (ESG) factors and the rapid rise of crypto assets and currencies and blockchain have all become major focal points for supervisors. This is necessitating, in some cases, new regulatory frameworks or adapting existing ones. In this episode, Bryan Stirewalt, the CEO of the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) shares his insights into how the authority is approaching the regulation of crypto and he also delves into how the global adoption of ESG can be encouraged in a more standardised fashion. Other topics covered include the DFSA’s work with international standard setters such as the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision where Mr Stirewalt represents non-Committee members.
