With the rapid progress of Fintech developments and the far-reaching extent of the reach of such developments into our everyday transactions, financial services regulators suddenly have extra incentives to enter into new cooperation agreements with each other. Underscoring these agreements is the common need to facilitate fintech innovation while gaining a constantly improving understanding of what financial services are likely to emerge from the technological advances and, consequently, what the needs will be for regulatory change and adaptation.

Here we provide a list of regulatory authorities by country and links to the agreements that they are known to have entered into with each other in relation to fintech-related sharing and cooperation

This is currently an incomplete list which we will add to as we locate existing agreements and as new agreements are signed and publicly announced. *
