There is a growing belief that technology (rather than increased headcount) is the only way financial services firms can adapt to growing regulatory requirements.
Asian governments are exploring ways to support the development of RegTech; and firms in the region are looking to RegTech as a way to meet their compliance obligations and reduce costs, without being distracted from their main business.
Fitting RegTech into established regulatory structures, where there is little harmonisation between jurisdictions, poses some major challenges. But with RegTech solutions now addressing a wide range of compliance requirements, the opportunity to re-imagine and improve regulatory compliance in APAC is huge. ECN’s summit will enable an essential dialogue between key stakeholders about the role of RegTech in achieving this.
The event will connect Heads of: Compliance, Risk, Innovation, Data Analytics, Audit, Transformation and Regulatory Reporting from leading Asian banks, investment managers, insurance companies, capital markets firms and private equity firms with leading RegTech providers and the region’s key regulators.
Speakers and delegates will hear enlightening thought-piece talks and panel discussions, and engage in lively workshop-style discussions. Topics include:
- Identifying and overcoming key inhibitors to the adoption of RegTech in Asia
- How regulators can work to harmonise regulatory regimes, and encourage the development of RegTech
- How RegTech can enable incumbent firms to compete with non-bank players
- Defining the specific compliance pain points where RegTech can offer most value
- How regional attitudes to data protection and Europe’s GDPR impact the implementation of RegTech solutions
- Collaborations between established RegTech players and start ups
- Emerging RegTech solutions for KYC, AML, trade surveillance and conduct risk
