英澳两国监管机构签署金融科技信息共享协议

近日,澳大利亚证券投资委员会与英国相关部门达成协议,协助金融科技创业者在两国开拓市场。

签合作协议的两个监管机构将分享新兴金融科技部门相关信息,比如市场趋势和监管问题细节等。

协议还提出将在两国监管机构的“创新中心”项目间建立推介机制。

去年4月,澳大利亚证券投资委员会建立了一个“创新中心”,旨在帮助金融科技创业者了解金融监管,支持他们完成授权过程,并且提供与监管机构接触的机会。

澳大利亚证券投资委员会指出,自从“创新中心”创立以来,这个项目帮助了超过75家创新型金融科技公司,并为10 家金融科技初创企业颁发了金融服务牌照。

英国的金融市场行为监管局(FCA)在2014年4月推出了一个类似的计划。截至目前,该计划已经辅助或支持了超过200家金融科技企业,包括给18家相关企业颁发了许可证。

推介机制意味着一个金融服务公司如果得到了澳大利亚证券投资委员会“创新中心”的支持,那么同样也将得到英国FCA的协助,反之亦然。

澳大利亚证券投资委员会主席Greg Medcraft在一份声明中说,这项协议将有助于减少金融科技市场的入门壁垒。“金融科技可以同时让投资者和消费者受益,澳大利亚证券投资委员一向对这种创新表示支持。如今,我们已经开拓了许多金融科技相关的业务市场,比如智能咨询、众包股权基金、支付、市场借贷和区块链商业模式等等。”

在协议达成之前,英联邦政府于去年采取了金融系统调查报告的建议,包括建立一个金融公私部门创新委员会。而澳大利亚总理Malcolm Turnbull也在随后成立了一个在金融服务技术领域专家组成的咨询小组,希望将澳大利亚建设为亚太地区的金融科技中心。

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has forged an agreement with its UK counterpart to assist new fintech providers to enter each others' markets.

The co-operation agreement [pdf] sets out that the two regulators will share information about issues relating to the emerging fintech sector. This includes details of market trends and regulatory issues.

The document also sets out the creation of a referral mechanism between the two regulators' "innovation hub" programs.

In April last year, ASIC formed an innovation hub designed to help fintech providers navigate financial regulation, support them through the authorisation process, and engage with the regulator.

Since its creation, the program has provided assistance to more than 75 "innovative" fintech companies and issued financial services licences to 10 fintech start-ups, ASIC said.

A similar scheme was set up in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in April 2014, which it said has so far assisted supported over 200 fintech businesses, including licencing 18.

The referrals process means that a financial services business receiving support from ASIC's innovation hub will be eligible for assistance from the FCA, and vice versa.

In a statement, ASIC chairman Greg Medcraft said the agreement would help reduce barriers to entry in the fintech market.

"ASIC is committed to encouraging innovation that has the potential to benefit financial consumers and investors," Medcraft said.

"In particular we have dealt with robo or digital advice, crowdsourced equity funding, payments, marketplace lending and blockchain business models."

The agreement comes after the federal government last year adopted the majority of recommendations made in the financial systems inquiry report, including for a finance public-private sector innovation committee.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull subsequently formed an advisory group made up of experts in financial services technology in an effort to make Australia the Asia-Pacific's fintech hub.
