FinTip - FinTech Incubator Platform


Launch your FinTech firm through our industry leading FinTech Incubator Platform


Key Features and Benefits

FinTech is transforming the entire financial services world - on a global scale and in a speed never seen before. In 2014 over $14bn was invested in the sector. New startup companies are challenging traditional banking institutions and existing solutions, and London, being traditionally one of the world’s main financial centres, is attracting a lot of those startups and becoming one of the leaders in FinTech innovation centres.

One of the main challenges for the launch and international expansion for FinTech businesses is to navigate through the complex regulatory landscape, to understand, develop and implement a compliance and regulatory framework and to obtain the required regulatory permissions to get started. This means that a launch may be 8-12 months away, but Lawson Conner can help to reduce significantly launch time and costs.

Lawson Conner supports FinTech companies to launch quickly and efficiently through a number of services which form part of industry leading FinTech Incubator Platform called ‘FinTIP’. For example, you can become FCA compliant in only a few weeks, and for a fraction of the costs usually associated with a direct authorisation by becoming an Appointed Representative of an authorised firm under our FCA umbrella platform.

FinTip allows companies to launch quickly and efficiently and offers the following services:

  • FinTech advisory - advice for FinTech entrepreneurs on how to get started
  • Regulatory umbrella  - using a regulated firm to launch in approximately four weeks
  • Regulatory and compliance advice on structuring, process design and implementation
  • Development of regulatory process maps
  • FCA applications (investment management, AIFM, e-money, payment processing, crowdfunding, Consumer Credit Regulation (CCL))

We will help you set up all the processes and procedures so you can focus on the launch and growth of your FinTech business. We can also take care of all the ongoing compliance requirements by preparing regulatory filings, as well as tax, payroll and accounting submissions. Through our capital introductory service we can help you find investors and make necessary connections to secure your funding.

All our services are integrated with award-winning software which saves time and costs. Finally, we can also provide ongoing training so you can stay compliant and up-to-speed with regulatory requirements at all times.

We understand your business and the fact that you want to concentrate on growing your firm as we are entrepreneurs ourselves. Our experienced team has launched over 100 regulated entities up to date. By becoming our client you will gain access to a team of compliance experts and free up your time and resources so you can focus on vital business activities.
