A-Team Regtech Summit Calls for Cooperation Between Vendors, Users and Regulators

Speakers underline the need for collaboration to ensure regtech growth and innovation.

London, United Kingdom, October 11, 2018 --(PR.com)-- A-Team Group’s RegTech Summit returned to London on October 4, 2018 with an impressive line-up of keynote speakers, lively panel discussions and an innovative regtech showcase featuring four newcomers to the market. The event also hosted numerous sponsors exhibiting leading regtech solutions and was joined by over 200 capital markets participants keen to further their knowledge of, and investment in, regtech.

Stephane Malrait, managing director of market structure and innovation in financial markets at ING, opened the Summit with a review of the regtech landscape and a call for financial institutions, solution providers and regulators to join forces to support regtech growth and innovation, and overcome barriers to adoption.

Delivering a keynote on the future of fighting financial crime, Che Sidanius, global head of financial regulatory and industry affairs at Thomson Reuters, repeated the need for cooperation, this time between public and private organisations, and noted the necessity to share information and technology to challenge the problems of financial crime including money laundering on a global scale, rising numbers of victims of modern slavery, and its potential to destabilise the banking system.

A third keynote presented by Peter Moss, CEO of the SmartStream Reference Data Utility (RDU), noted significant opportunities for regtech to support compliance with the systematic internalisation regime under Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II).

The Summit also included panel sessions led by industry leaders and covering everything from regtech business uses cases to the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. A solutions showcase featured four young regtech providers, their services, pricing models and roadmaps.

Andrew Delaney, the Summit chair and chief content officer at A-Team Group, said: “This year’s RegTech Summit in London was a resounding success, reflecting growth in the regtech market and increasing product adoption as financial institutions seek to reduce the costs of regulatory compliance while increasing efficiency and agility.”
