Fintech for lawyers, legal practitioners and compliance professionals

Feb 21


About the course

UCT [email protected] is pleased to present a one-day course in fintech.

Fintech is here to stay and over the past decade emerging technologies and changes in regulation have driven unprecedented transformation around the world. Law firms, in-house lawyers and compliance professionals cannot afford to be left behind and must be equipped with the necessary tools to understand the complex interaction of finance technology and regulation. The emergence of fintech as a stand-alone sector has broadened the scope of roles for both banking and generalist lawyers.

Along with new technology comes new terminology for lawyers and other professionals. Terminology like blockchain, cryptocurrency, insurtech, regtech, P2P, open banking, crowdfunding, mobile money, and many of these fintech concepts can be overwhelming. Furthermore, many lawyers are unsure as to what the regulation of fintech covers and what it’s actually like to work or advise clients in such an innovative sector.

As fintech companies continue to grow, so does their need for skilled legal advice. The compliance professional too, is playing in an entirely differently world and need to be apprised of the regulatory changes that fintech will demand.
