Wirecard

Below is a media release from the Monetary Authority of Singapore that says MAS has issued an order requiring Wirecard and associated business units to forthwith cease operations and to return all funds to customers no later than 14th October 2020. The release was issued on Saturday, 30 September. The date of the Order was not published in the release.

In his blog (here), Nigel Morris-Cotterill talks of chickens coming home to roost, a lack of attention by regulators too anxious to become FinTech hubs and the constraints on prudential management of FinTechs operating across borders, especially under the EU's central regulatory regime.
