阿布扎比联合酋长国推出数字沙盒监管计划

本周,阿布扎比全球金融市场(后文简称ADGM)数字沙盒正式推出。

据悉,该倡议旨在为银行、金融科技创企和监管机构提供一个开放的数字市场,帮助各方在市场中合作创建、测试和推出新产品。

ADGM金融服务监管局首席执行官Richard Teng表示,有关方面还希望借助沙盒吸引更多国际参与者进军该国金融市场。

与此同时,ADGM还与该国政府经济发展部签署了合作协议,希望能为包括金融服务在内的多个行业的创业公司提供更多的综合支持。

迪拜、阿布扎比和沙特阿拉伯(该地区最大的金融市场)都是中东重要的金融市场,因此想要成为这一地区的金融科技中心可谓竞争激烈。

阿布扎比和迪拜都积极建立沙盒和加速器,并与其他机构签署合作协议,但沙特阿拉伯一直处于追赶模式。

不过,沙特资本市场管理局已经向两家本地初创公司发放了首个金融科技许可证,并预计今年晚些时候将收到更多的申请,推动该地区金融科技产业发展。

Abu Dhabi Global Markets (ADGM), the emirate's international financial centre, has further underlined its fintech ambitions with the launch of a digital sandbox.

The initative is designed to offer banks, fintechs and regulators an open digital marketplace in which to collaborate on the creation, testing and adoption of new products, according to ADGM.

It is also aiming to promote local fintech firms to Abu Dahbi-based banks as well as attract international players to the emirate, says Richard Teng, CEO of ADGM's Financial Services Regulatory Authority.

In a busy week of fintech promotion, ADGM also signed a cooperation agreement with the government's Department of Economic Development which it hopes will provide more integrated support for startups across a number of sectors including financial services.

The competition to establish a fintech hub of choice in the Middle East has become increasingly intense between Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia - the biggest financial market in the region. While both Abu Dhabi and Dubai have been active in establishing sandboxes and accelerators and signing cooperation agreements with other domiciles, Saudi Arabia has been in catchup mode.

However, the Saudi Capital Market Authority recently issued its first fintech licences to two local startups in a bid to kickstart its fintech sector and expects to receive more applications later in the year.
