Belgian financial regulators FSMA and NBB have identified FinTech as an important focus of their supervisory activities. FinTech (Financial Technology) refers to start-ups or established firms that use technology to offer innovative processes, products or services in the financial sector.

Examples are: crowdfunding, distributed ledger technology, virtual currencies,  APIs (application programming interfaces) or alternative distribution models.

As the regulatory framework plays a key role in accommodating both innovation and safety within this industry, the FSMA and the NBB offer FinTech companies (whether start-ups or established firms) the opportunity to enter into direct contact with them via the button below. The FSMA or the NBB aim to get back to you within 3 business days.

General information about our tasks and powers, specific supervisory rules and authorisation procedures can be found on the FSMA and the NBB websites.
