Neo is now authorized to advise European clients on foreign exchange risk management and will be allowed to offer Fx trades execution from its proprietary platform www.getneo.com.

Neo is one of the first B2B Fintech to have reached this level of regulatory approval, which allows the digitalization of a large scope of hedging solutions for corporates.

Neo’s clients will have 100% digital access to hedging instruments normally sold by banks (such as Fx forwards, swaps and options). Neo’s platform will also propose pre-defined solutions for specific issues faced by corporates (budget hedging, foreign investment hedging, accounting hedging, automated order management).

Laurent Descout, CEO & co-founder, said: “Getting regulated for investment services is not just a significant milestone for Neo, but for the fintech industry in general. There are almost no independent investment firms in Europe and few are 100% Fx B2B focused. We are proud to be one of the first Fintech that is MIFID2 compliant as it is a mark of safety for our clients. We are now in great shape to help corporate clients operating cross border, through advisory and the automation of executing Fx hedges.”
