On Jan. 21, 2016, Bryan Cave and Polymath Consulting presented a live Webinar, Opportunities for Fintech & Emerging Payments in the U.K. and the EU, part of a series to help companies understand the emerging payments landscape in the EU and its regulation.
Many deem the EU as a more favorable regulatory landscape for emerging payments than the U.S. If you’re thinking of launching a payment product in the EU, this Webinar explains how it works, what are the opportunities and challenges, and how the EU differs from the U.S. marketplace. While the Webinar focuses on the U.K. landscape as a practical example, the scope of the Webinar includes other EU jurisdictions as well.
This webinar takes a look at:
- What is the EU and what jurisdictions are covered?
- Which emerging payment products are growing in the EU?
- The structure of EU payments laws and the types of payment licences in the EU—and the powers they convey.
- How basic requirements under anti-money laundering, data security, and consumer protection laws differ from the U.S.
- The option and challenges of obtaining licenses directly vs partnering with other licensed entities.
- How “passporting” works for expanding to other EU jurisdictions.
