  • 23. Regulation of mobile financial services varies significantly across jurisdictions Predictors of regulatory action • Degree of decentralization of regulatory oversight of financial services and telecommunications – U.S. FCC; Financial Services Regulators; EU –Payment Services Directive • Political power of wireless carriers vis à vis financial services sector – U.S.; Mexico; India • Presence of significant domestic political or policy initiatives which are relevant to the remote movement of money – EU- SEPA; Mexico –Anti-money Laundering; greater financial liberalization, consumer protection • Significance and profile of remittances – Philippines (GDP); Mexico (regionally, hard currency); India (counter example) • Depth of financial services sector throughout the country – Low penetration tends to favor mobile financial services; South Africa • Reach of land lines throughout the country – Kenya (TKL-2006: <1%; SafariCom; Celtel) © Camille M. Busette, 2009 23
  • 24. Navigating Regulatory Environments is an ART Factors to consider • What is the profile of the regulator you are dealing with? Are they political appointees? Do they represent a particular ideological viewpoint? • How entrenched are wireless carriers; what is the competitive landscape? • How powerful is the traditional banking sector with regulators? And how is power distributed among various national regulators? • Does the regulator or government have a particular set of policy goals: i.e. liberalizing the financial sector, decreasing rural poverty, etc • How central is the country to international flows of illicit money? • What key international relationships are significant for the country –and how have they tried to use regulatory stature to influence those relationships? © Camille M. Busette, 2009 24
