WASHINGTON – The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has opened registration for a June forum on "supporting responsible innovation" in the banking industry.

"It demonstrates our commitment to maintaining an open, active dialogue regarding innovation, and will help further our thinking as we develop our framework for responsible innovation," Comptroller of the Currency Thomas Curry said in a press release Monday.

Topics to be discussed at the June 23 event, to be held in the OCC's Washington headquarters, will include financial innovation trends, risk management, financial inclusion and consumer protection. The forum will be free and live-streamed.

In recent months the OCC has demonstrated its interest in addressing fintech issues. In March it released a white paper on financial innovation, which laid out a broad vision for how it will deal with fintech companies and technologies. And earlier this month an OCC official told American Banker the agency was contemplating the creation of a charter designed for fintech companies.
