Shearman & Sterling Launches Interactive FinTech Regulatory Sandbox Survey
03/28/2019Through our FinTech Foundry, Shearman & Sterling today has launched an interactive survey of the FinTech regulatory sandboxes located throughout the world. Each point on the map indicates the existence of a regulatory sandbox and a user may click to get further information such as launch date, governing commission, law & regulations and sandbox environment.
Regulatory sandboxes provide a controlled environment for eligible FinTech firms to conduct live testing in under regulatory supervision. The number of regulatory sandboxes worldwide has grown significantly over the past two years, as now over 30 countries and jurisdictions have launched sandbox initiatives, with several others set to follow suit.
Our FinTech Foundry is a program dedicated to supporting the FinTech-related activities of our clients and the wider global FinTech ecosystem consisting of financial institutions, FinTech start-ups, accelerators and incubators, venture capital and private equity investors, and policymakers. Through one of its pillars, FinTech Advisory, we have a team of attorneys committed to supporting and providing legal mentoring to FinTech startups shaping the future of financial services.
