Financial technology (FinTech) is a marriage of sorts between the financial services and technology sectors. It leverages on technology to innovate the delivery of products and services traditionally offered by financial institutions. Writing on this new area of law and business encompassing domestic and international jurisdictions, the author covers the subject in a unique way combining the legal, business and operational aspects of FinTech through his broad experience as a practising lawyer, and a board member of a bank as well as of a listed technology-based company.  

This book takes you through the realm of financing covering both Islamic and conventional banking with an explanation of the history and analysis of the applicable legislation including;
  • the Capital Markets and Services Act 2007,
  • Securities Commission guidelines,
  • Central Bank legislation,
  • the Financial Services Act 2013,
  • the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013,
  • the Anti-Money Laundering,
  • Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 (AMLA)
  • the Companies Act 2016,
  • the Contracts Act 1950 and also related legislation in Asia, Europe and the United States. 
Leaving no stone unturned, the author begins the book on a history lesson of finance and proceeds to where it is today with FinTech making inroads into the financial industry via technology. He then discusses at length on the legal and operational aspects of banking and finance and moves on to capital markets and issues relating to money laundering. Mergers and acquisitions and corporate law are tackled by providing instances of FinTech acquisitions coupled with a lesson on takeovers and due diligence. He then moves on to the technical aspects of digital banking covering several jurisdictions. With his background in Islamic finance, he deals with takaful insurance, Islamic FinTech and E-waqf. He also deals with cyber security covering several pieces of legislation relevant to it. The book ends with a chapter on internet of things and smart contracts with a detailed analysis of the legal implications of smart contracts and internet of things and solutions moving forward.
