FinTech is arguably the most innovative area within financial services. The nexus between technology and finance has opened new markets, created entirely new types of product and in doing so, presented unique and previously unforeseen challenges to financial regulators. From the growth of payment services and e-money businesses, to the potential game changing role of crypto assets, fintech is rarely out of the news. But for many observers of the market and indeed to consumers as well, the exact regulatory status of much of the fintech world is often shrouded in mystery and hidden behind seemingly impenetrable nomenclature.

In this month’s 40 minute briefing we want to provide a status update on the FinTech market. We will look at some of the big initiatives and movements within the space, with a view to understanding what positions the regulators are taking on these.

This session is aimed at members of the wider financial services community who are looking to understand the regulatory state of play in the fintech sector. In particular, we will discuss the following topics:

·        The Kalifa review – current regulatory attitudes in the UK;

·        Payments;

·        Open finance;

·        Buy now pay later (BNPL);

·        The crypto perimeter; and

·        Decentralised finance (DeFi)
