About Fintech 

Market participants may be providers of technological solutions which bring innovation to traditional financial services companies or they may be companies delivering innovative financial services offerings which disrupt the existing financial services market. 

What unites Fintech players is the pursuit of new ideas and business models to bring digital transformation to all aspects of the heavily regulated financial services industry. 

Today’s Fintech market has been characterised by a period of significant growth (Accenture’s latest research into the global market found that investment Fintech ventures grew by 75% last year). However it is also a crowded space in which participants need to have a clear competitive edge  to survive. As the market matures survival or failure can increasingly be ascribed to success in certain key areas. These are:

  • Getting regulatory compliance right;
  • Making the right partnerships at the right time on the right terms; and
  • Driving adoption by ensuring excellent user experience. 

With a track record of providing high-quality and innovative legal advice, Allen & Overy is ideally placed to guide market participants through all business and legal issues in this thriving sector. As a recognised banking powerhouse we have a huge knowledge base and extensive experience of advising on financial services regulation.

In addition, our strong connections with the leading financial services authorities mean we can support our clients in all their dealings with local regulators. We marry this regulatory expertise with deep and broad experience in the technology sector. We have advised on some of the cornerstone projects in the banking technology market and we also work with some of the most successful technology companies of the 21st century. From growth companies to established market players, we know what it takes to succeed in Fintech.
