  • UK Conduct Regulator Announces New Digital Sandbox in Response to COVID-19
    05/04/2020
    The U.K. Financial Conduct Authority has announced a new digital sandbox pilot program, which will provide regulatory support for innovative firms whose business plan addresses issues arising from the coronavirus pandemic. The FCA intends to open the sandbox for applications in summer and, in the meantime, welcomes any expressions of interest from interested innovative firms. The FCA had been planning a digital sandbox before the pandemic, but is fast-tracking the process in light of the challenges facing firms and how the sandbox might assist them.
