FinTech Survey: Money Transmission

A review of regulations in all 50 states

The GW Center for Law, Economics, & Finance is proud to release our fifty-state survey of money transmission laws. By providing an innovative and intuitive user interface as well as a simplified and uniform presentation of each state’s statutes, users will be able to quickly highlight the core differences between each state’s laws. We hope that this will lower the information cost for FinTech startups, investors, and academic researchers among many others. More importantly, we hope that this can serve as a proof-of-concept for how state-based FinTech regulation can become more accessible while maintaining its biggest strength—adaptability.
