AIR is a nonprofit, non-membership organization working to make the financial system fully inclusive, fair and resilient through responsible use of new technology. By connecting regulation, finance, technology and society, AIR drives global innovation and collaboration to overcome the system’s legacy shortcomings and prepare it for rapid technology change.
Financial regulation works as an invisible force shaping people’s lives. It aims to prevent mistreatment, bias, instability and corruption while ensuring that everyone has equal access and fair opportunity. Jo Ann Barefoot and David Ehrich founded AIR in 2019 to strengthen this force through new technology. AIR helps government and industry develop and scale up responsible innovation to solve systemic problems, including financial exclusion, race and gender discrimination, deceptive and predatory practices, climate change, economic instability, and financial crimes like human trafficking.
The Alliance of Innovative Regulation launched in 2019 with a small staff and a huge mission. Since then, the organization has more than tripled in size, advanced digital regulatory solutions and fostered a global conversation about innovation.
In 2020, the Alliance for Innovative Regulation published this road map for a gradual but urgent conversion of the financial regulatory framework to a digitally native design. One former U.S. agency head called it “the bible for every regulator.”
Nick Cook, AIR's head of strategy, outlines years of studies showing how organizations that favor diverse thinking, staff heterogeneity and inclusiveness formulate and execute the best new ideas.
