Financial Services and Fintech

Entities from the financial services sector are a big part of our client base. They recognize in our firm a partner in all their dealings and operations in Chile, from their internal organization and corporate governance matters to their participation in the most complex and sophisticated financial transactions.

We advise commercial and investment banks, asset managers, investment managers, broker-dealers, fintech entities and insurance companies, and provide them with constant support in regulatory matters, including the analysis of the impact from regulatory changes, in the creation and commercialization of financial products, and in their roles as lenders, underwriters, agents, guarantors, insurers or intermediaries in large local and cross-border transactions.

Our banking and finance team, together with our litigation and public law teams, are suitably qualified to assist all players from the financial sector in their relationship with the authorities and supervisory bodies, both as preventive action before potential changes to the regulation or the imposition of sanctions and in response to formal actions or investigations. We are also prepared to defend our clients’ interests against borrowers, sponsors, guarantors and others in the courts when so required.

We recognise the challenges that the financial sector is facing because of the spectacular growth and fast-paced development of the fintech industry in the recent years. Our firm advises traditional financial entities that wish to enter that new field, and also new and potential fintech companies, in matters related to the applicable regulation and how to structure their business in Chile.
