Lawtech Boost—The U.K. Announces R&D Initiative To Accelerate Legal Services Technology Development. This week, Britain’s Ministry of Justice, the LawTech Delivery Panel and Tech Nation - a government-sponsored body created to support the digital economy - have jointly announced plans for the creation of an R&D sandbox. A place where new concepts can be tested in a regulatory compliant environment. The inspiration for the sandbox came in part from a similar exercise carried out by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in 2015 to allow financial technology companies to test ideas. It’s an initiative that has played a role in driving the success of Britain’s fintech sector.

On Tuesday May 5th from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm BST, IFI Global and Catalina Consulting, in partnership with Invest Northern Ireland and IQ-EQ will host an e-seminar to explore the development of the Irish Funds Industry post the COVID-19 crisis. A White Paper will follow. Many believe that the current crisis will likely lead to a review of business practices across multiple industries, including fund management. Additionally, given the particularly peripatetic nature of the European Fund Industry reform is probable. The e-seminar and White Paper will therefore explore what that reform might mean for the Irish Funds Industry.
