Next Gen RegTech: November 2021 themes revealed

A decade ago, JWG worked with Banking Technology to produce the world’s first RegTech magazine for our sector. We are now delighted to be hosting the 6th annual RegTech / SupTech  Conference on 16 & 17 November 2021 which promises to be one of the most exciting, digital events of the season.

Agenda and themes

18 months on from our 5th RegTech conference we’ve stepped back to look at the combined pre-Covid and post-Covid books of work to find a much more strategic and business-centric RegTech agenda.

JWG analysts have been hard at work throughout the pandemic mapping out the next generation of regulatory reforms’ impact on firms, their supervisors and suppliers. In addition, we’ve been at the forefront of ground breaking collaborative efforts and public/private sector dialogues. This year we see three crucial themes for the next generation of RegTech and SupTech deployment:


Market opportunities – #Digitalcompliance

RegTech can make or break business cases as investment firms, FinTech and DeFi enable high fidelity, low-cost data and digital compliance. New market structures, conduct rules and customer expectations demand safe, digital management of trusted, transparent interactions in a democratized market.

Speakers: ECB, London School of Economics, Barclays, Zodia DTCC, KPMG, Seccurency


  • NextGen digital market winners and losers here
  • Digitalisation of capital markets here
  • Regulated / Regulator / Technology Priorities wrap-up here

Example regulation: MiFID III, MAR, DFA 2.0, MICA, Digital Finance, DeFi, CBDC

Systemic technology and data controls – #Digitalintegrity

Covid has supercharged regulatory demand for more information on the integrity of FS systems and data. However, expectations of what ‘good looks like’ vary wildly by jurisdiction and firms and their suppliers are left scrambling to develop new, holistic control frameworks.

Speakers: ADGM, ECB, State Street, IPUG, Kemp IT Law


  • Digital Integrity & your cloud compliant strategy here
  • DRR Keynote here
  • Digital surveillance: man, machine, market abuse here

Example regulation: ESG, UK Operational resilience, EU DORA, Third Party risk management, EU AIA, Accountability, MAR, Basel IV, BCBS 239

Risk management and reporting – #Digitalriskcontrol & #DRR

Regulators have begun operating on the data backbone and the industry is working fast to deploy RegTech to disambiguate data needs, align business interpretation, map to common identifiers and deliver open source code to manage it. At the same time, AML/CFT and Market abuse policies are being upgraded to allow for smarter deployment of RegTech. What have we learnt from the first wave of RegTech/ SupTech and what happens next?

Speakers: Bank of England, ECB, London School of Economics, RUSI, Aldermore Bank, Deutsche Bank, Wells Fargo,  ING Sparq, Adenza (formerly Axiom)


  • Digitalisation of risk data collection here
  • Deploying AML RegTech to protect the system here
  • Digital data surgery – will the patient survive? here
  • Managing your risks and controls with RegTech here

Example regulation: CRR2 430C, EMIR Refit, CFTC reporting  2.0, CPMI/IOSCO, BoE Transforming data collection, Conduct/Culture, Diversity, Accountability, Next Gen EU AML, UK Economic crime plan

Across these themes we will be looking to pick out what has worked well over the past decade and what how does the next generation RegTech and SupTech solve real problems better, faster, cheaper and more safely.


We have focused on the areas that have made the most progress and brought together the all-stars from regulators, the firms they regulate and the supply chain that serves them. We also have an impressive list of thought leaders, trade associations and leading academics lined-up.

Overall, there will be 5 speakers from the regulatory community, over 25 from top firms and over 5 from technology providers – the biggest and best line-up of over 60 organisations involved in RegTech yet assembled.


Hundreds of people have already confirmed their attendance to hear thought leaders from both the public and private sectors for far more than your usual conference chat. JWG is in the Chair both days and working hard now to shape the debates, identifying core issues and teasing out the answers from a mix of experts. There will be no monologues. This means that you will not only be wiser about the real issues, but know how to approach the solutions.

Thanks to a large investment in JWG’s digital platform, we can bring you live Interaction on the day and a content-rich experience that includes plenty of opportunity to explore the latest research. The conference platform will be live for 6 months for allowing the debate to continue and refer back to the research.

Those that are in the live sessions will not only be in the know, they can help shape the debate through the live chat and interactive voting!

Target Audience

Now more than ever we need to bring the public and private sectors together to set the digital path ahead.

Public sector: Prudential regulators, Conduct regulators, Government bodies, Policy units

Private sector: Financial institutions, Accademia, Trade bodies, Standards organisations


Financial institution roles:

Regulatory SMEs: heads of regulatory change, compliance, legal, regulatory reporting, regulatory programme owners, etc.

Executive decision-makers: CDOs, CIOs, CAOs, COOs, etc.

Technology: CTOs, heads of eCommerce, heads of IT, etc.

How is our event different?

Having kicked off the RegTech conversation in 2011, we think few can bring this community together in the way we can, and it’s a global conversation that needs to be had.

JWG is neither a consultancy nor a law firm – we spend our days working with all parts of the industry to enable RegTech to help manage regulatory change in a faster, better, cheaper and safer manner. That is what this conference is all about.

The event featured on Business Insider’s list of the top 10 RegTech conferences for the year, and the feedback from 1,000+ C-level execs, managing directors and others from big-name institutions has been tremendous.

We know everyone has zoom fatigue and that the on-line event experience from others has not met expectations. This is why we’ve been asked to work out how to apply our very high standard of debate to an online forum.

What does it cost?

The best part is that if you are employed as a senior manager at an investment firm you get in for FREE.

Early bird discounts are available for vendors £150 for the live event. We have kept this low to help educate and inform the community.
