About us

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.

"Fintech is not only an enabler,

but the driving engine"

Pierre Gramegna, Luxembourg's Minister of Finance
