October 29, 2018. Atos

RegTech: From Compliance Checkbox To Competitive Cornerstone

July 02, 2018
Bank of America is being sued for $120 million after failing to flag large deposits into small accounts, which were cleared a few days later. Previously, U.S. Bank was fined $600 million for failing to flag and report suspicious activity according to anti-money laundering (AML) requirements. These are big banks making these mistakes, and they aren’t the only ones making headlines for regulatory blunders.

Sure, technology has been used for many years in one way or the other to support compliance and adhere with regulatory obligations but it wasn’t until last year that RegTech made it into the headlines and has really come to the awareness of boardrooms and decision makers.

The evolution of regtech

April 18, 2018
Since the global financial crisis a plethora of regulation has been introduced and enforced. Whilst the pace of new regulatory initiatives has certainly ebbed, the consequences of such change are vast and remain in play.

Global regulatory compliance – RegTech isn’t a panacea but provides critical tools in the right hands

March 19, 2018
Global regulation has developed like a slow growing but increasingly powerful storm system over the last five years. And whereas big wave surfers welcome such conditions thanks to the epic waves it produces, there are, it could be argued, precious few C-suite executives relishing the equivalent regulatory waves being cast ashore. Asset managers today must contend with complex data aggregation tasks due to reliance on multiple data sets often operated and managed on multiple systems. But whilst this is putting great pressure on internal resources, creating a tug-of-war between compliance departments and the front-office as they compete for additional dollars, there is a way forward; one that uses both top-down and bottom-up approaches to create a more cost-effective, automated regulatory compliance program.

Examining the ROI & Benefits of RegTech Solutions for Businesses

March 07, 2018
Compared to pre-financial crisis spending levels, operating costs spent on compliance have increased by over 60% for retail and corporate banks. With that, the global demand for regulatory, compliance and governance software is expected to reach $118.7 billion by 2020. Investments and regulatory compliance solutions, however, cannot be seen exclusively as an expense account anymore and proven to be worth the hassle. Estimates suggest that investments in regulatory software can lead to an ROI of 600% or even more with a payback period of fewer than three years.

When it comes to regtech, going it alone isn’t an option

January, 2018
Why is collaboration important for regtech? (Interview – Chris O’Driscoll, head of disruptive change at PA Consulting Group) – If I think about the word “collaboration” in the context of regtech, it’s not about two similar organisations pooling ideas or resources. For me, it’s about any firm that has a stake in technology as a means to simplify compliance becoming part of an ecosystem. I’d include banks, insurers, asset managers, regulators, tech firms, consultants, accelerators, and academics in that eco-system. They all have something to bring to the table to support the regtech industry.
