The European Fintech Alliance (EFA) is a platform for all companies – big or small, established or just started – active in the Fintech business.
It primarily aims at supplying early and first-hand information about relevant political and regulatory developments which have an impact on the industry.
What is more, it provides strategic advice to companies facing regulatory intervention by policy-makers in Brussels and the EU Member States.
It assists its members in formulating common policy positions and in actively communicating their views to key decision-makers so as to create a more favorable regulatory environment.

Marcus Laube, Chair of the European Fintech Alliance and founder and CEO of crossinx has published an article in "Bank und Markt". In "Spiel ohne Regeln - noch" Mr. Laube calls for equal conditions of competition for everyone through Europe-wide uniform regulations. These should, however, be technologically neutral, not excessive and not focus on the business model but on the products instead.
The article can be found at the Bank und Markt homepage.
