2020 has been another year of growth for fintech and payments, as economies became increasingly cashless and alternative payment products and regulations proliferated. What is driving alternative payments products and networks like stablecoins and central bank digital currencies? How have payments regulations been stress tested in Europe? What have been the key areas of regulatory change and what has been the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on payments?

In this episode of Connected With Latham, as part of our “Fintech Focus” series, Hong Kong counsel Simon Hawkins, Washington, D.C. partner Todd Beauchamp, and London partner Christian McDermott discuss four legal and regulatory themes arising in the payments industry this year, and how they will impact the landscape going forward.
