科威特央行正式推出金融科技监管沙盒

近日,中东金融科技行业又传来新消息。

作为中东地区重要经济体的科威特宣布,将于近日为金融科技创企推出专属监管沙盒机制,保证创企能够在安全的环境下测试产品和服务,进一步推动地方金融科技发展。

据悉,科威特央行的这个监管沙盒为期一年,共分四个阶段,参与其中的创企要在经过专家小组评估后才能确定是否可以进入市场。

科威特央行行长Mohammad Y Al-Hashel表示:

“作为监管机构和其他监管机构,我们必须确保我们在制定促进创新和增长的法规方面发挥积极主动的作用,同时避免或至少降低风险。“

此前,阿布扎比、巴林和迪拜一直积极建立金融科技监管沙盒和加速器,并与其他机构签署合作协议,而沙特阿拉伯则在最近颁发了该地区首个金融科技许可证。

Kuwait's central bank is launching a regulatory sandbox for startups, joining a crowded regional field jostling to become the Middle East's top fintech spot.

The central bank has put together a regulatory sandbox framework document designed to promote innovation by letting firms test products and services in a secure environment.

Typically, participants will have one year to go through four stages in the sandbox before being evaluated by a taskforce on readiness to enter the market.

Says Central Bank of Kuwait governor Mohammad Y Al-Hashel: "We as regulators, and other regulatory bodies, must ensure that we play a proactive and dynamic role in creating regulations that facilitate innovation and growth, while at the same time avoiding or at least mitigating risks."

Kuwait is joining several other Middle East players in the fintech race. Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Dubai have been active in establishing sandboxes and accelerators and signing cooperation agreements with other domiciles, while Saudi Arabia recently issued its first fintech licences.
