(Reuters) – Brazilian fintech Nubank said on Monday that new central bank rules for digital banks will mean lower-than-expected capital requirements next year and in 2024, with the announcement set to boost its shares.

In a securities filing, the Warren Buffet-backed Latin American fintech star said the change has no material impact on its “business model or our ability to grow.”

U.S.-listed shares of Nubank rose nearly 2% to $6.04 in after-hours trading. However, despite Monday’s plunge, shares of Nubank are down nearly 37% so far this year, amid deteriorating investor sentiment in the broader tech market.

On Friday, Brazil’s central bank announced stricter rules for fintechs, which will subject payment institutions to regulation because of their size and complexity, while raising standards for required capital.

The new framework, which will come into effect from January 2023 and be fully implemented by January 2025, will extend the proportionality of the regulatory requirements currently applicable to conglomerates of financial institutions to financial conglomerates managed by payment institutions.
