As a major RegTech provider and leader in regulatory reporting, Lombard Risk is participating in RegTech Rising, the major European RegTech conference. The conference has the biggest concentration of RegTechies I have seen, with cross-industry participants: regulators, regulated, vendors, consultancies and investors. There have been some fantastic insights and debates around how the digitisation of everything from identity management to horizon management to regulatory reporting will be transformed, and faster than you may think. All this makes for the onset of friction-less regulation (not no friction, just less friction!), and will embrace artificial intelligence, machine learning, distributed ledger technology, machine readable rules, for their best outcomes. Most importantly however, irrespective of the specific technology set that underpins the delivery of the solution, RegTech is providing the opportunity for firms to experience being regulated differently. Regulators themselves also see significant upside to applying regulation differently; indeed for all parties to embrace RegTech innovations it’s a win-win.
