Our Purpose

Our Priorities


Delivering better financial services for all Europeans.

Digital innovation can deliver better outcomes for all. By encouraging competition, empowering consumers to shop around and offering convenient alternatives to traditional banking, FinTech providers are fundamental to delivering user friendly innovation.

We will promote customer centric regulation, to build a fairer and more accessible financial services landscape.


Promoting safe and
secure digital finance.

Security is crucial to building trust in FinTech, and financial services as a whole.

We aim to support and promote the transparent use and protection of data, use our insights to help build efficient and convenient processes to combat illegal activities, and to work towards risk based and harmonized standards across the EU.


Building a truly
digital Single Market.

We support the development of a strong digital single market for financial services with consistent consumer protection standards, future proof regulation, and true competition that works for Europeans.

By encouraging proportionate regulation that will support European financial innovation and facilitating seamless market access, we believe the European Union can be a kick-start for global growth of FinTech companies.
