Do you need help in your fintech-project?

Fintech-projects are about starting a new activity in the financial sector, and they almost always need a relevant authorisation or registration from the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanssivalvonta). The application process consists of many legal needs of which the most important are organising the activity, preventing money laundering and terrorist financing, data security and storing customer funds.

Despite if you are just planning the authorisation application or if you have already sent the application, your needs are always the same – an approved authorisation or registration.

Nordic Law is Finland’s best fintech law firm. Our comprehensive knowledge of the fintech-technology in the background and the legislation concerning cooperating with the authorities guarantee leading the authorisation or registration process successfully from the beginning to the end.

The authorisation application has not been sent

Despite if your planned fintech activity is offering investment or payment services, establishing a fund or virtual currency related, it is advisable employ a knowledgeable lawyer before taking the first step. This ensures smooth and successfully led authorisation process and saves you time as well as money.

Fintech authorisation processes consist in large parts of so called silent knowledge and without it completing the authorisation process is extremely hard as interpreting the rules and legislation correctly is impossible without practical experience. We have amassed a significant amount of this silent knowledge as we have led and advised on countless authorisation and registration processes.

It is not uncommon that we are asked to help only when the authorisation process comes to a dead end. Usually, the reason is that something was done – or not done – during the process and the supervising authority could not approve the application.

With our comprehensive knowledge we can guide already pending or even rejected applications to a successful finish. With our help your authorisation process can get a new chance and your fintech project can be finally approved.
