Bank-fintech partnerships can create significant opportunities for banks and fintechs alike. For banks, fintech partners can provide valuable technology and innovation that bank customers demand. For fintechs, banks are trusted partners that enable them to access traditional banking products and services. Given these synergies, it is hardly surprising that bank-fintech collaboration is growing at a rapid pace.
Structuring a bank-fintech partnership, however, is not without its challenges. There are necessary legal and regulatory considerations (in addition to corporate issues) for the bank and the fintech when commencing any partnership. Banks are subject to comprehensive supervision and regulation. For example, banks cannot form a partnership or otherwise invest in a fintech without complying with regulatory restrictions and third-party risk management standards, among other things. In turn, fintechs, as lesser regulated entities, will become subject to greater regulatory scrutiny and compliance requirements. This webinar reviews best practices and options for firms considering a bank-fintech partnership.
This bank training webinar covers:
- Regulatory trends in fintech and bank partnerships;
- Key areas of focus in evaluating bank-fintech collaboration; and,
- Examples of successful bank-fintech partnerships.
This compliance training is relevant for:
- Banks exploring fintech partnerships and investments;
- Financial technology companies seeking to collaborate with banks
- Venture firms and other parties investing in fintech companies; and,
- Regulatory authorities seeking to better understand bank and fintech collaboration.
