This FinTech briefing series, brought to you in partnership with Taylor Wessing, aims to provide a grounding in those areas which affect the most innovative FinTech start-ups.

The regulation of financial services firms operating in the UK is complex, and this is more evident for innovative businesses which do not neatly fit into regulatory compartments or definitions. In this series, we will go through the basics of the regulatory regime in the UK and particular pitfalls you will need to be aware of when setting up operations. We will also focus on various topics which will be helpful to many start-ups.
