ABOUT THIS VIRTUAL EVENT
Timings: 13.00 – 14.00 BST (Online)
Financial services regulation in the UK is complex and far-reaching. The Financial Conduct Authority has made it clear that its rules are technology neutral. But where does this leave FinTechs, whose activities do not fit neatly into existing definitions?
Join us at this briefing session which will look at:
- What types of activities require authorisation or registration with the regulator
- The impact of carrying out regulated activities without the correct authorisations, and importantly
- How you go about getting authorised
This FinTech briefing series, brought to you in partnership with Taylor Wessing, aims to provide a grounding in those areas which affect the most innovative FinTech start-ups.
The regulation of financial services firms operating in the UK is complex, and this is more evident for innovative businesses which do not neatly fit into regulatory compartments or definitions. In this series, we will go through the basics of the regulatory regime in the UK and particular pitfalls you will need to be aware of when setting up operations. We will also focus on various topics which will be helpful to many start-ups.
