JWG established Special Interest Groups (SIGs) in 2006 to bring all parts of the industry together in a ‘Joint Working Group’ to discuss how to best solve compliance challenges with the latest technology.
The SIGs provide a collaborative, high-trust environment under Chatham House rule, uniting Directors, programme managers and regulatory SMEs from the sell-side, buy-side and vendors to understand how RegTech can help solve for regulatory challenges, large and small. Today, our RegTech SIGs cover trade surveillance, KYC/AML, and reporting and reference data. We have facilitated an average of 3 SIG meetings a month over the past 12 years.
Client Management SIG (CMS): This group focuses on AML and other regulations which govern client conduct.
Trade Surveillance SIG (TSS): This group covers trading issues of what can be traded, where it can be traded, which types of firm can trade it and what systems they need to have in place to do so.
Reporting & Reference Data SIG (RRDS): This group covers reporting to regulators including but not limited to transaction reporting, we will get into the details of reporting formats, standards and collection mechanisms as well as data models and gap analysis across comparable regimes.
