Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority
What is the FIN-FSA’s Innovation Help Desk?
The Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority’s (FIN-FSA) Innovation Help Desk advises service providers on authorisation, registration and other licence issues. The Help Desk welcomes as customers both start-up companies in the sector and already established enterprises that are planning to introduce a new type of product, service or way of operating. We also give advice to individuals who plan to set up a financial company. A customer relationship with the Help Desk requires participation in advice sessions by the owner or an employee of the company. The Help Desk provides the advice free of charge.
We foster an innovation-friendly culture while, at the same time, ensuring that the financial participants observe the law and give sufficient consideration in their activities to issues related to customer protection.
