RegTech Capital Markets Conference 2019

Once again, our annual RegTech Conference, now our 4th, proved to be the ideal forum for FS market leaders and decision makers to have comprehensive and constructive discussions with their peers, regulatory bodies and technology innovators.

Over 230 C level executives, from both the private and public sectors, came together to learn, network and exchange ideas. 27 speakers on 9 thought provoking panels, highlighted the importance of sharing information, in a co-operative spirit, with the aim of finding effective strategies to deal with what is currently happening in the regulatory space. Leaders within RegTech were able to have direct contact with the decision makers within Tier 1 & 2 banks, allowing them to talk about how their products can help deal with the multifaceted problems, resulting from an ever-evolving regulatory environment.

Speakers included: The Bank of England, Financial Conduct Authority, Deutsche Bundesbank, BlackRock, BNP Paribas, CBA, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, ING, Revolut, Soc Gen, Santander and State Street.

Vendors included: Apiax, Blueprint, Cloudera, Digital Reasoning, Kaizen, MarkLogic, NICE Actimize, RegDelta, Simudyne, Smartlogic, Synechron and Virtusa

The audience included: Allianz, BAML, Barclays, BMO, BNY Mellon, Canaccord, China Construction Bank, Citi, Citadel, Credit Agricole, ED&F Man, Exane, ICBC, JP Morgan, LBG, Luminor Group, Maquarie, M&G, Morgan Stanley, MUFJ, Nomura, Northern Trust, Rabobank, RBC, Ruffer, Santander, Saxo Markets, Scotiabank, TD, UBS, Wellington, Wells Fargo, Westpac and more!

The Conference delivered a holistic perspective on the journey up the RegTech mountain, the paths forward and the marathon in front of us.

The aim of our RegTech conference has always been to create a community which not only discusses the regulatory agenda but encourages strategic conversations on how banks, in conjunction with regulators and trade associates, can avoid the many pitfalls in this space.  In addition, with the presence of some of the most innovative vendors in this field, it gives decision makers hands-on access to solutions which promote maximum efficiency whilst reducing risk.

As you can see in exhibit 1, by using next generation interactive event e-badges at this year’s conference, over 2081 unique connections were – an average of 9 per delegate which is double the average conference!  Exhibit 1: Audience interaction at 7 June RegTech Capital Markets

The consensus at this year’s conference is that there has been a shift in the mood – it’s still a marathon, with decades of work still to do. Having said that, we now have an environment where regulators are actively asking how they should be setting the standards and with industry leaders stepping up with answers. Collaboration maximises the chances of genuine success and we at JWG continue to be at the forefront of this conversation – as we have been since 2006 when we set-up our first ‘Joint Working Group’.
