(8 months ago)
LONDON: The global leadership status of the UK RegTech industry was underlined today by the inclusion of 26 UK-based companies on the RegTech 100 list of innovative companies that every financial institution should be aware of in 2018.
The RegTech (regulatory technology) sector is a rapidly growing segment of the FinTech space. It's occupied by leading-edge technology companies developing solutions for banks and financial institutions to help them deal with the increasing burden of regulation on their business activities.
The development of these solutions is expected to have a huge impact, valued at tens of billions of pounds, over the next few years. RegTech will enable financial institutions to generate major savings by increasing the efficiency of their compliance processes as well as to grow revenue by enhancing their service capabilities.
London has established itself as the world's leading city for RegTech innovation. The interaction between a well-developed tech sector, a supportive regulatory authority and active investors has facilitated the creation and growth of innovative companies that are incorporating the latest technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, into their products.
Amongst the UK's world-leading RegTech companies and products are the following:
