“The fintech sector is growing, and that growth is gathering pace. Fintech will be the tech battleground of the future, as financial services providers of all stripes fight it out for primacy.
We hear a lot about the companies and the technology at the fintech cutting edge. What we don’t hear a lot about are the people behind those companies, and behind that tech, making sure everything is legal and above board.
It might not sound as ‘sexy’ as being the creator of a tech start-up, but being one of the lawyers supporting the industry means being an essential part of its growth.
That’s the message that Finuas, the Law Society and Fexco are trying to get across with the FinTech Symposium, taking place this Friday (2 September) at Blackhall Place, Dublin.
Eleanor Daly, general counsel at Fexco and someone who has been instrumental in organising the symposium, spoke to us earlier this month about why a better legal understanding of fintech is essential to growing the sector.”
