ESBG Spotlight 6 December 2022 – Jan Vermeulen (NBB), Payment Fintech: Quo Vadis?

It seems that most Fintech companies target payments as the holy grail for their business. Since PSD2 has brought the opportunity for those Fintech companies to become licensed to operate in payments, the number of FinTech companies as well as the granted licenses showed impressive growth. But is it all gold that glitters?

Now that the review of PSD2 is taking place, Jan Vermeulen, directly overseeing the Belgium-based licensed FinTech companies at the National Bank of Belgium, will take stock on whether that is the case or not.

During this ESBG Spotlight, he will provide insight in the developments in the Belgium Fintech space since PSD2 became into force.
