One of the defining characteristics of financial technology is its borderless nature. At the same time, however, the full potential of this feature is frequently limited by the unique compliance regimes of the many regulatory agencies across multiple jurisdictions that have been in place for years. While prudent financial market regulation has contributed to a vibrant, competitive, global financial services ecosystem, the ever-increasing pace of financial technology development creates constant stress on these regulatory frameworks, and exposes an apparent tension between fintech innovators and global regulators. All too often, the technologist’s…

Election 2020 may have come and gone, but there remain outstanding questions about the makeup of Congress and the regulatory outlook for digital assets. While the electoral math is unlikely to be quickly resolved and ambiguity as to who will sit atop of key financial regulatory agencies is unlikely to be clarified until early in the new year, industry and regulators will continue to press forward in the interim toward the development of a mature digital assets ecosystem.

As we continue to discuss how…

Economists, pundits, institutions and investors often talk about the global financial system. When stocks go up and trade thrives, they applaud its contributions to prosperity; when the markets crash and stocks dip, they blame its inhuman scale or its untrustworthy manipulators. But anyone who has attempted to diversify their portfolio with foreign stocks or acquire another nation’s bonds quickly comes to the same conclusion: The global financial system isn’t a single entity. “The system,” singular, is really “The systems,” plural.

How do the pieces of the…

On 27 July 2020, Luxembourg — the world’s second-largest domicile for investment funds behind the US — submitted a draft law updating a law of 1 March 2019 that allowed for the registration and transfer of securities by custodians.

When American regulators from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) proposed a “Travel Rule” for tracking digital assets and identifying their senders and recipients in May 2019, many in the cryptocurrency and blockchain community responded with varying degrees of concern and skepticism. Reactions were similar when the global Financial Action Task Force (FATF) proposed similar rules in September 2019. Some argued that the technology wasn’t ready to accommodate these requests, while others stated that the Travel Rule, by proscribing anonymity, would somehow destroy the revolutionary promise of digital…
