About the Event

Hong Kong is a global financial powerhouse, being the regional hub to most of the world’s major international and regional banks, securities firms, insurers and asset managers; the Greater Bay Area’s financial gateway; the first home of many leading Chinese financial institutions and fintechs when they first expand outside the Mainland; and the progressive birthplace of many innovative regulated virtual banks, insurtechs and virtual asset trading platforms. Did you know that nearly half of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority’s Fintech Supervisory Sandbox pilot trials to date related to regtech?

ACMI, together with co-organisers LITE Lab@HKU, InvestHK and the Fintech Association of Hong Kong, are building upon the success of our inaugural and inclusive World Regtech Summit that included regulators, panels comprising authors of The REGTECH Book and regtech leaders from the APAC Regtech Network, Australia and Ireland, and a targetted audience of nearly 400 registrants comprising senior representatives from compliance, AML, financial crime, and tech risk who saw 16 regtechs from around the world pitch innovative solutions. For highlights and a list of our wonderful past supporting organisations, see the video below.

This year, through our online format, we will grow our number of panels of prominent leaders to cover emerging and important areas of regulatory development, digital identity, financial institution digital transformation, digital assets, AI governance and financial crime, and give the opportunity to showcase more innovative regtech solution pitches from around the world. We will also launch our inaugural Regtech Ecosystem Map: Hong Kong and Beyond 2020. Updates will be added on our website
