Eduardo Guraieb is the director of Mexico’s fintech association. In this episode, Guraieb gives his perspectives about the country’s new fintech law, which was approved by congress in March.
The law sets out rules for crowdfunding companies and crypto assets, among others. It also opens the door to a “sandbox” (an testing environment, which companies can use to try out products on a limited scale) and to open banking, which broadens access to data traditionally held only by banks.
Eduardo shares his views on the new law, and what is ahead in the secondary legislation, in this chapter.
This interview is part of iupana’s special series on regulations for June 2018.
