谷歌支付获立陶宛电子货币机构许可

本周,谷歌支付(Google Payment)立陶宛分支机构宣布获得立陶宛银行董事会颁发的电子货币机构许可。

该公司隶属于谷歌母公司Alphabet Inc.。获得这份机构许可后,该公司将可以发行电子货币并提供支付服务。

一直以来,立陶宛就一直致力于打造有利于金融服务竞争与创新的生态环境,并将其定为立陶宛银行(2017-2020)的战略目标之一。

据统计,目前立陶宛共有100多家持牌金融科技机构,主要从事支付、电子货币发行、P2P借贷和众筹等相关业务。

立陶宛银行董事会成员Marius Jurgilas表示,过去几年,立陶宛始终积极推动金融科技生态系统的发展,而立陶宛目前的监管环境已经得到了金融科技创企和世界级金融集团的认可。

 

 

 

The Board of the Bank of Lithuania has granted Google Payment Lithuania UAB an electronic money institution licence authorising to issue and redeem electronic money as well as provide payment services.

“The end of this year reflects our efforts and experience of the past few years in actively developing a FinTech-conducive ecosystem in Lithuania. Our regulatory environment and the benefits it offers have been acknowledged by both start ups and world-class FinTech companies,” said Board Member Marius Jurgilas.

Google Payment Lithuania UAB is part of Alphabet Inc. (Google’s parent company). Having secured an electronic money institution licence, the company will be able to issue electronic money and provide payment services to ensure smooth operation of its marketplaces across Europe, alongside working on other payment services for consumers within the European Economic Area, including Lithuania.

The Lithuanian FinTech cluster now includes more than 100 licensed companies, the majority of which are engaged in activities related to payments, electronic money issuance as well as P2P lending and crowdfunding platforms.

Developing an environment conducive to competition and innovation in the financial services field is one of the Bank of Lithuania’s strategic directions for 2017-2020.
