Regulatory Sandbox - Opportunities for FinTechs on the Austrian Financial Market

Since 1 September 2020, there has been a Regulatory Sandbox for FinTechs at the Financial Market Authority (FMA). With this, the Austrian legislator created the regulatory basis for a secured environment for testing innovative business models with the Financial Market Authority Act (FMABG). What opportunities arise for Austrian FinTechs from participation in the Regulatory Sandbox?

As part of the ZFR Forum 2021, three proven experts from the ranks of the regulatory supervisory authority (FMA), the consulting sector and the financial industry will discuss this in digital form in accordance with the Corona rules on March 18. They will present the new legislation in short speeches, each from their own point of view. In the subsequent discussion, the audience will have the opportunity to ask the experts questions and present their views.
