A-Team RegTech Summit Emphasises Urgency of Efficient, Enterprise-Wide Compliance

London, United Kingdom, November 17, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Speakers underline the need for collaboration to ensure RegTech growth and innovation.

A-Team Group’s RegTech Summit returned to New York on November 14, 2019 with an excellent turnout of over 230 practitioners, regulators, start-ups and solution providers all keen to explore how the financial services industry can best leverage technology to drive innovation, cut costs and support regulatory change.

Colin Ware, Global Head of RegTech at BNY Mellon, kickstarted the day with a fascinating fireside chat with A-Team Group’s Chief Content Officer Andrew Delaney, offering a practitioner perspective on RegTech development and the urgency of change.

Thought leaders including Raymond Hanson, Managing Director and Head of Global Markets Program Delivery & Regulatory Technology at Credit Suisse, Robin Doyle, Managing Director in the Office of Regulatory Affairs at JP Morgan Chase, David Ehrich, Co-Founder and Executive Director with the Alliance for Innovative Regulation (AIR), and Richard Maton, Executive Board Member and Strategic Initiatives Lead at the International RegTech Association, convened for a comprehensive review of the regulatory horizon, exploring the current barriers to adoption and potential synergies across multi-jurisdictional regulatory approaches.

Additional keynotes came from Bradley Foster, Global Head of Content (Enterprise) at Bloomberg, who gave the audience a unique perspective on why an integrated regulatory, data and technology strategy is so important; and Dr. Giles Nelson, CTO of Financial Services at MarkLogic, who delivered a stark warning on the challenge facing financial services in meeting the increasing volume and rigour of regulation, offering insights into the benefits that could be accrued through digital regulation and the automation of governance and oversight. William K. Gates of SmartStream RDU offered insight into key security data challenges within trade and transaction reporting; while Peter Gargone, CEO of n-Tier Financial Services, and Fera Jeraj, Head of Global Equity and Structured Products Technology at BMO Capital Markets, presented a compelling session on the trend towards regulatory operations and the critical components required for success.

A panel on Managing Regulatory Change and Driving Efficiencies, always a hot topic, welcomed senior industry figures including Tammy Eisenberg of BNY Mellon, Viktor Grinberg from Deutsche Bank, Will Newcomer from Wolters Kluwer, and Harry Chopra of Axiom SL to discuss how firms can and should be coping with increasing volumes and managing the consistency of rules across regulators.

A detailed review of the preparation needed for the advent of the Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT) was well-attended, with experts including Manisha Kimmel, Senior Policy Advisor for Regulatory Reporting at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Joshua Beaton, Head of Americas Trade & Transaction Reporting at Morgan Stanley, and David Emero, Vice President, Regulatory Operations at Goldman Sachs, coming together to explore the key requirements and challenges of this complex new framework.

Further panels explored best practices for regulatory reporting efficiency, how to manage data privacy in an AI world, and how to digitise the customer experience with KYC and AML innovation.

The New York event also presented a number of exciting new sessions – including an exploration of the new RegTech Innovation Initiative from the NYU Stern Volatility Institute (presented by Richard Berner, former Director of the Office of Financial Research, US Treasury), and RegTech Innovation Showcases from cutting edge newcomers CUBE, Theta Lake, ComplyAdvantage, and Inpher.

A-Team Group was also delighted to welcome the UK’s Department for International Trade at the event, as part of its 2019 RegTech Mission to New York.

Andrew Delaney, the Summit chair and chief content officer at A-Team Group, said: “This year’s RegTech Summit in New York was the best-attended yet, marking the strong growth and positive progress within the RegTech industry as innovation and investment combine to reach a tipping point where we are starting to see real change occur.”
