DX Support Services for Financial Institutions

Legal and regulatory support for enhancing and digitalizing services provided by financial institutions, including digital transformation assistance for financial institutions, assistance for planning and executing digital strategies and launching new businesses

Market Developments

Digital transformation (DX) has continued to gather momentum across all industries in recent years, and this trend has only accelerated with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Incorporation of DX technology has also advanced among financial institutions, including in the following ways: increased use of digital signatures and electronic data storage; utilization of data terminals and installation of open APIs; the use of cloud computing systems; and the establishment of online banks and advanced service companies.

As the provision of previously impractical and futuristic financial services becomes possible with the brisk adoption of DX technology by financial institutions, there is a growing sense that we have entered an era where the competitive strength of financial institutions will be decided upon the deftness of their DX strategies.

Our Services

The movement toward digital transformation in financial institutions has given rise to security issues and other problems previously unseen in existing operations. Accordingly, it is essential to minimize risk without forsaking the convenience produced by advanced services. This requires careful analysis that draws upon legal expertise across a spectrum of financial regulations and laws, such as the Banking Act, the Insurance Business Act and the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, as well as laws, regulations and guidelines related to data security and safety control standards of industry-based organizations.

The firm’s experienced lawyers provide support taking into account the latest trends in digital transformation at financial institutions as well as regulatory trends.
