Licensing services


Licensing has become an indispensable part of doing business internationally. PSD2 and other FinTech regulatory developments have created new opportunities for emerging champions. The regulatory matters can be confusing and overwhelming. Thales Capital covers both licensing and certification in all major jurisdictions. Thales Licensing specializes in providing comprehensive licensing solutions to businesses, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and facilitating a smooth and efficient licensing process.


If a certain business offers financial services licenses, holding a specialized license enables it to reassure clients and partners about the security and dependability of the business, aside from allowing it to work completely legally.
