The Dubai Financial Services Authority, DFSA, and the Securities and Futures Commission, SFC, in Hong Kong today entered into an agreement to establish a framework of cooperation on financial technology, FinTech, innovation. The agreement will further strengthen the efforts of both authorities to develop an innovations-friendly ecosystem in their respective markets.

The signing took place between Ian Johnston, Chief Executive of the DFSA, and Ashley Alder, Chief Executive of the SFC, in Hong Kong.

Under the agreement, both authorities will share information on developments and innovations in FinTech in their respective markets. The agreement also intends to encourage both regulators to refer innovative firms to one another’s markets and to provide them with regulatory guidance.

Johnston said, "Providing a regime that fosters innovation in the Dubai International Financial Centre, DIFC, is a strategic priority for us. This agreement with Hong Kong’s SFC deepens cooperation between our two markets and will build a common understanding of the principles of good innovation."

"This agreement underscores the SFC’s efforts to strengthen regulatory collaboration and promote innovation in financial services," said Alder.

"We look forward to working closely with the DFSA to support FinTech development in both our markets."

The agreement extends the existing relationship between the SFC and the DFSA with a joint commitment to maintain the highest standards of cooperation. Both regulators are signatories to the IOSCO Multi-lateral Memorandum of Understanding, MMoU. They also entered into a bi-lateral MoU in 2008.

The agreement marks the latest step in the DFSA’s roadmap to build a framework that supports innovation in the DIFC. It follows the introduction of regulations formalising a tailored regime for loan and investment crowdfunding platforms on August 1st, the first in the GCC. On May 24th, the DFSA launched its Innovation Testing Licence, ITL, a special class of financial services licence that allows FinTech firms to develop and test innovative FinTech concepts from the DIFC.

The DFSA's innovation strategy is aligned with the National Innovation Strategy set out by UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to make the UAE a global hub for innovation. It follows the launch of the FinTech Hive at DIFC, which will bring together the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs to compete and address the growing needs of the region's financial services industry, using innovative technology solutions. It intends to catalyse growth and efficiency in a variety of areas including trade finance, alternative finance and Sharia-based services.

The SFC established the FinTech Contact Point, FTCP, in March 2016 to enhance communication with businesses involved in the development and application of FinTech and regulatory technology in Hong Kong. The FTCP also facilitates an understanding of the SFC’s current regulatory regime while enabling it to stay informed of the development of the local industry
