We have worked with a number of clients to help them understand the international regulatory framework covering the broad new area of ‘Fintech’. Our focus has primarily been with regard to the way regulation can play a pivotal role in establishing a vibrant industry sector, especially offshore.  Through international research, comparative analysis and country specific deep dives, we have provided businesses with a perspective on possible future regulation as well as discussed strategic objectives and propositions with the boards of both financial service and technology based companies.
