The Regulatory Playbook for Zambian FinTechs

Topic :

The Regulatory Playbook for fintechs compiles lessons learned from the FinTech4U Accelerator Programme for start-up fintechs piloting or scaling innovative digital finance services for the underserved in Zambia.

The work within FinTech4U included:

  • regulatory mapping sessions to understand the various gaps and challenges fintechs have in meeting current regulatory requirements and
  • regulatory navigation sessions hosted by the regulators in the financial sector to address some of the challenges highlighted in the first activity.

Developed in collaboration with BongHive Innovation and Technology Hub, the Bank of Zambia (BOZ), the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority (ZICTA), this Playbook covers key regulatory initiatives and milestones in relation to the regulation of fintechs. The Playbook aims to equip startup fintechs in Zambia, with relevant, current information as they prepare their new businesses offering digital finance products or services to enter the market.
