Q&A

The term FinTech, which derives from Financial and Technology, refers to companies that are dedicated to the provision of financial services or products by means of advanced technology. These companies create alternative, agile and disruptive routes to obtain financing, acquire a financial product, manage assets and so on.

Thanks to the innovative nature of Spanish fintech entrepreneurs, within Europe, Spain is second only to the United Kingdom in financial technology, as over 350 fintech start-ups have been launched here, generating roughly 10,000 jobs. Indeed, Spain is the European country with the highest number of start-ups per inhabitant.

The Law of Digital Transformation for the Financial Sector and the Regulatory sandbox were approved by Parliament in November 2020., This initiative created a controlled testing environment where companies with disruptive and innovative projects develop their activity under the umbrella of the regulator or supervisor that oversees their business model. In other words, if a company creates a highly innovative project that is not yet clearly regulated, due to its novel nature, it can opt to enter this test environment and develop its idea under the oversight of the supervisor.

The Spanish Sandbox, one of the most ambitious in the world, will attract more than 1,000 million euros in investment and directly create between 4,000 and 5,000 jobs. In addition, it will prevent the flight of talent to other European countries that are in full technological boom.
