FinTech is all about innovation and will undoubtedly have a huge impact in shaping the way financial institutions operate.
Lithuania has been recognised as a fast-track EU entry point for FinTech. The reason is its progressive approach to regulation, with, for example, the quickest path to a pan-European FinTech licence in the EU, a specialised “lite” bank licence for challenger banks, and a regulatory sandbox. The country also boasts FinTech-friendly infrastructure, the ability to issue your own IBANs, and SEPA access for non-bank institutions.
In this context, Lewben Group offers more than just deep industry knowledge. To begin, we can help you choose the regulatory framework that’s best-suited to your FinTech undertaking. We’ll advise on whether to go, for instance, with a payment institution, electronic money institution, crowdfunding platform, peer-to-peer lending platform, specialised bank, investment management company, or investment fund. Then we provide assistance throughout the licensing process and as you build your cross-border FinTech business, making it easier to cope with the relevant financial regulations as well as IT, AML, accounting and e-commerce issues.
With nearly 100 professionals specializing in a broad range of practice areas, Lewben Group is ready to provide the expertise and services you need.
Considering the specific financial services your FinTech aims to provide, Lewben Group will help you identify the most suitable regulatory regime. We’ll also help you with the documents that are needed to obtain a license. Our team of specialized professionals is able to offer comprehensive assistance in preparing a business plan, financial forecasts and legal documents, as well as on AML/CFT and accounting solutions. And once you have obtained a license, we can help you ensure you’re compliant with the relevant laws and regulations.
