Fintech in a nutshell: the financial technology sector which encompasses firms that use technology-based systems either to provide financial services and products directly or to make the financial system more efficient.

 

It has been reported over the past years that Fintech is a rapidly growing sector. The recent reports show that in the first half of 2018, investment in fintech companies in Europe alone reached €23 billion.

Besides the huge investment return, the fintech sector brings rewards including innovation and job creation, but also challenges, such as data and consumer protection issues, and the risk of exacerbating financial volatility or cybercrime.

To tackle these multi-disciplinary challenges, policy- and lawmakers in the European Union (EU) have adopted and announced several initiatives, for instance on intra-EU payment services, data protection, crowdfunding, and regulatory sandboxes.

In 2019 the European Commission launched a study to analyze the challenges for the European players and possible policy measures at EU level. This analysis leads to the development of short-term recommendations around effective implementation of the EU Fintech Action Plan, coherence with the Digital Single Market, taking the international dimension into account, and investing in knowledge, access to new markets and communication. Longer-term recommendations are to replicate the innovative approach characterized by the second payments service directive in future legislation and to set up a Multi-Stakeholder Forum to stay abreast of trends and risks.

The European market accounts for 17% of the global fintech industry and the leaders are the US with 48%, while China is also holding strong with 35%. (source: bankingtech.com)

AGEM and GLI® Donate $200,000 to Dr. Robert Hunter International Problem Gambling Center Through their Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative

Published

Through their joint charitable venture, the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) have committed $200,000 to the Dr. Robert Hunter International Problem Gambling Center over the next two years.

The gift was made in part to highlight the importance of Responsible Gaming Education Week 2019, running September 15-21 and organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA) as a national push for responsible gaming education, training and awareness that includes participation from many industry stakeholders.

Executive Director Stephanie Goodman said, “We are so grateful for the incredibly generous donation that AGEM and GLI have pledged to our center. The unprecedented transformation of our clients during our six-week Intensive Outpatient Program developed by Dr. Rob Hunter, speaks volumes to the effectiveness of a program that combines group therapy with cognitive-behavioral therapy and science. Because of this generous gift from our industry partners, AGEM and GLI, this money will have a direct impact on problem gamblers in our community. Problem gambling, officially termed as a Gambling Disorder in the DSM-5, is recognized as an addictive disorder, alongside alcohol and drug use disorder.  PGC is working to educate our community in an effort to remove the stigma associated with this disease while at the same time, healing the clients who commit to our program.”

Commenting for the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, GLI Spokesperson Lori Sayde said, “AGEM and GLI, through the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, support the Problem Gambling Center because its multi-pronged approach to helping individuals through evaluation, treatment and counseling, regardless of their ability to pay, is an essential service.”

“We are also pleased to make this contribution as Responsible Gaming Education Week kicks off, and to join forces with the countless operators, suppliers, regulators, and organizations that are united in the fight against problem gambling and who are committed to supporting programs that help individuals affected by this disorder,” Sayde continued.

This is the first joint effort by AGEM and GLI through the Initiative to support responsible gaming. Separately, both companies have long histories of supporting responsible gaming efforts in policy and in financial support.

“AGEM has been a supporter of the amazing work done by the Problem Gambling Center in Las Vegas since our inception and our annual contributions over the past 20 years now total nearly $1 million,” AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater said. “We are still saddened by Dr. Hunter’s untimely passing last year, but are encouraged by the motivation of the PGC team to carry on his powerful legacy that assists so many Nevadans in need.”

AGEM and GLI announced the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative earlier this year and made its first gift to the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering building fund at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which was a $500,000 contribution.
