Enabling a better client experience while managing enterprise risk

Canadian FinTech is growing. Domestic banks and financial institutions (FIs) actively partnering with FinTech firms and incubators have the ability to use complex analytics to cross-sell existing customers and target key buyer values.

With the rise of reliance on Fintech relationships comes an increase in operational and financial risk, which has prompted dominant organizations to hold their service and application providers to a high level of control and IT governance standards. Still, significant opportunities exist with talk of creating equity banks to increase domestic venture funding, collaboration between universities, financial insitutions and FinTech firms, and creating regulatory sandboxes for startups to foster innovation.

BDO's professionals guide our FinTech clients through this ever-changing industry with services ranging from Service Organization Control (SOC) audit services to tax structuring and government Incentives. We also provide IT governance and security services to ensure data and systems are secured and protected. And to help our FinTech clients achieve the sustained growth they expect, we often bring in BDO's comprehensive StartSmart suite of services.

With offices across Canada, we leverage an approach that combines responsive service, accessibility, and an unfailing commitment to our clients' success. Our integrated global network provides guidance from an international perspective to deliver exceptional client service.
