Global FinTech Guide

In recent years, FinTechs have emerged as a powerful force in the financial sector across the world and are increasingly competing with traditional players like banks and financial institutions. At the same time, regulation needs to keep pace with new developments and many jurisdictions are quickly enacting corresponding regulatory frameworks – e.g. for cryptocurrencies or digital Know-your-Customer onboarding solutions.

This guide has been put together by industry experts from Multilaw firms across the network and presents a multi-jurisdictional analysis of the relevant legal framework and economic conditions under which FinTech services can be provided.
