Ex Ante Regulation? The Legal Nature of the Regulatory Sandboxes or How to Regulate before Regulation even Exists


Prior to the Global Financial Crisis, financial innovation was driven by so many factors, but the Global Financial Crisis changed the regulatory pendulum, which has swung to deeper regulation and also changed the way we thinking about financial innovation. The financial innovation – with its bright and destructive outcomes – is an integral part of the competition in the financial market. But the race is such that the regulatory authorities are in a rather disadvantaged position if we just thinking of the old fashion regulatory paradigm. In this context, the question is what – new – legal institutions – such as regulatory sandbox – could provide financial stability and a proper legal regulation to unregulated financial products and services.
