Developing EU financial regulation and what it means for FinTech

The European Commission’s proposals for further financial integration and a full Capital Markets Union (‘CMU’), published on 20 September 2017, are the latest steps in the European Commission’s journey towards establishing a CMU, which began in 2015. Of particular note is that the European Supervisory Agencies will be specifically tasked with promoting sustainable finance and FinTech. Here, Simon Warburton of Mills & Reeve LLP looks at the Commission’s plans in this area, particularly as they relate to FinTech, and notes also the results of the Commission’s consultation issued earlier this year, which was entitled ‘FinTech: a more competitive and innovative European financial sector.’ Simon analyses responses to this consultation across a number of key areas, and argues that if the CMU proposals work as well as the Commission expects, they will address many of the concerns raised in the recent FinTech consultation.
