Introduction to a new legal framework: PSD2 & GDPR

With the adoption of the revised payments directive (PSD2), the European Parliament paved the way for a revolution in the european payment industry. Under the new regulation, the playing field is finally level for startups in the FinTech space to play a more important role. Free movement of data between consumers and companies in Europe becomes a reality.

► Privacy is going places. No turning back after May 2018.
► Are banks really played out?
► More opportunities for #fintech companies lay ahead. Learn which.
