In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic swept away regulatory plans and programmes for the year while regulators rushed to stabilise the markets and protect consumers in distress. As 2021 begins and global communities look toward recovery, regulators will be keen to take forward the lessons learned in potentially reshaping and reforming regulations, including in the FinTech space. During this webinar, lawyers in Baker McKenzie’s FinTech Group will assess the impact of developments in 2020 and look ahead to what FinTechs should expect from regulators in 2021. We will look to provide an overarching policy update from UK and EU perspectives, and focus in on some of the key themes for 2021 – the future of financial services regulation in the UK, the payments landscape, digital transformation, consumer protection, outsourcing, and cybersecurity. We will also provide the latest on regulatory enforcement trends and their relevance in the FinTech space.
