Overview

Due to the advancement of the digitalization of the financial industry, an increased need for financial regulatory advice and support is also becoming increasingly apparent. YPOG is a pioneer for industries and projects of this kind: regulated sectors such as FinTech, InsureTech or blockchain-based business models have been a fundamental focus of the firm from the very beginning. The expansion of this practice has been significantly driven by Lennart Lorenz, Dr. Frederik Gärtner and Daniel Resas in recent years.

Due to the increasing importance of digital business models, regulatory issues will continue to gain relevance, especially with regard to blockchain-based business models and digital assets.
