YORKSHIRE is ideally placed to become a hotspot of the UK's fast-growing and highly lucrative fintech industry, according to IT experts at law firm Ward Hadaway.
Financial services providers face the considerable challenge of balancing the range of opportunities for growth with some of the tightest regulations of any sector.
As the scope for the provision of financial services advice has widened, so have the rules surrounding those activities and companies and individuals in the sector often need to tread carefully to strike a happy medium between the two.
This is where we come in.
Our team is composed of experts in a variety of different disciplines – including corporate finance, banking, commercial and regulatory – all brought together to give you a comprehensive overview on ensuring compliance with regulations without compromising your business.
We can help financial services providers with everything from day to day matters such as staffing issues, commercial contracts, compliance and procurement to property matters, corporate moves and joint ventures.
Our advice is also grounded in practical experience – some members of the team have previously worked within financial services businesses or on secondment so they know what the situation is like “at the coal face” and can deliver advice with true commercial awareness.
We act for a range of businesses involved in the financial services sector including:
- Building Societies
- Credit card providers
- Independent Financial Advisers
- Pension companies
