FINTECH IS CAPTIVATING REGULATOR’S INTEREST

Introduction

Not long ago, fintech was the stuff of science fiction. Now it’s reality. In Europe, regulators are taking an active role in fintech regulation, which is leading to a fundamental shift in thinking by industry stakeholders across the continent. Fintech companies are becoming too big to ignore, which creates challenges for regulators.  

European regulators have the potential to fundamentally reshape the fintech landscape.

The European Union is taking a more active role in fintech regulation, which has led to a shift in thinking by industry stakeholders across Europe. This has the potential to fundamentally reshape the fintech landscape as we know it.

There are fundamental differences between the European and U.S. regulatory approaches.

The differences between the European and U.S. regulatory approaches are fundamental, and they’re not just about the general direction of each regulator. These two areas reflect different priorities for regulators:

  • In Europe, consumer protection and data privacy are top priorities because of its strong culture of privacy rights; this makes sense given that Europeans tend to be more concerned about personal information being sold or used without their consent than Americans (who tend to focus more on financial stability concerns).
  • Competition is also an essential aspect for Europe because there’s often no incentive for companies to compete if consumers don’t have alternatives available on which they can shop around for better prices or services—especially when it comes down to cross-border shopping!

Some fintech companies are becoming too big to ignore, but this creates its own challenges for regulators.

As the fintech market continues to grow, regulators are finding it difficult to keep up. For example, some companies are becoming so large that they’re considered big businesses in their own right. This means they can take on more risk and have a much larger impact on the economy than smaller companies could ever hope to achieve by themselves. In addition, some of these firms may be small but still feel like they’re too big for regulators’ hands—or at least they feel that way until they’ve already got a lot going on (like when Facebook acquired Instagram).

The challenge here is how do you regulate something which isn’t really a thing yet? How do you know what’s right or wrong when there’s no precedent set for what might happen next? On top of this, many people who work within fintech have argued that there are certain regulations that should apply regardless if things turn out badly; such as anti-monopoly laws designed specifically towards large corporations with monopoly power over markets such as media platforms or transportation systems.”

Regulators will shape the future of many new fintech products and services.

Regulators have a big impact on the fintech industry. They’re key to its success because they are responsible for creating rules that guide how companies operate within their jurisdiction, or “jurisdiction.” If you want to get into business in California or New York, you must follow those states’ laws and regulations—and if you don’t do so, it might cost you some money!

The regulators determine what type of license or permit is required before starting up your company so as not to cause any legal problems down the road (and also how much money it costs).

There are parallels with the importance of data privacy in Europe.

Data privacy is a big issue in Europe. Many companies are not aware of the importance of data privacy, but the European Commission has taken an active role in fintech regulation. It has been pushing for a more harmonized approach to regulation across Europe. The EC has a lot of power and can make changes on its own initiative, but it may also work with other regulators such as FINMA or MICEX if there’s a consensus that something should be done.

The European Commission is taking an active role in fintech regulation, which is leading to a shift in thinking by industry stakeholders across Europe.

The European Commission has been active in fintech regulation for many years and its work has led to the development of an EU-wide platform for the sharing of best practices. This initiative has provided a firm foundation for future growth and innovation within what remains one of the world’s most dynamic industries.

Conclusion

The European Commission has taken a leading role in fintech regulation since its inception, and it continues to grow. It’s clear that Europe is becoming a leader in this area and has the potential to fundamentally reshape the fintech landscape. The fact that there are fundamental differences between the European and U.S. regulatory approaches means that new products and services will emerge from this space with unique features that could have a significant impact on customers, businesses, and governments alike. This is an exciting time for those who want to be part of this movement towards more openness across borders!
