Analysing Australia’s proposed Enhanced Regulatory Sandbox

Andrew Galvin and Kate Montano of HWL Ebsworth Lawyers describe here their views on the Enhanced Regulatory Sandbox currently proposed by Australia’s Department of the Treasury. Andrew and Kate believe the Enhanced Regulatory Sandbox corrects many of the shortcomings of the current regulatory sandbox; most critically, payments businesses would be able to access the Enhanced Regulatory Sandbox to issue their own facilities, and that the Enhanced Regulatory Sandbox would, functionally, acclimatise FinTechs to, and ease their passage into, the Australian financial services regulatory environment. However, in this article Andrew and Kate also outline why they believe policymakers in Australia have yet to engage in ‘blue sky thinking’ on the appropriate regulation of FinTech and payments businesses.
