As the name suggests, RegTech is the combination of Regulation and Technology. Achieved through an entity-wide standardization of processes, RegTech ensures that the work done by individuals is consistent with regulatory standards. On top of that, regulatory experts implement control frameworks that further strengthen the regulatory system that corporations choose to install.

Regulatory Technology (RegTech) also addresses regulatory challenges that businesses operating in finance encounter. RegTech is often composed of companies who utilize cloud computing technology to help businesses comply with regulations as efficiently and effectively as possible. The technology can be used for compliance data management, audit trail, fraud prevention, and customer data Management.

With an increase in data protection needs all over the world, banks and financial institutions see the imperative to strictly conform to laws and compliances and ensure transparency in transactions involving money, as they are constantly monitored by regulatory bodies. Compliance with the rules allows organizations, like banks and other financial institutions, to avoid paying penalties. Many RegTech vendors partner with Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) vendors to enhance their customer reach and effectively connect to their clients in the market.

The highest use of Regulatory Technology is in Europe due to the strict and mandatory rules for financial transactions and data protection. The implementation of PSD2 (Directive of the European Parliament on payment services) and the United Kingdom’s open-banking regulation and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) accounted for the surge in RegTech activities in the region, allowing it to reach USD551M in 2017 (since 2013) which is approximately 18% of global RegTech shares.

While Europe has the strictest rules for data protection, The Asia Pacific region has the highest potential in RegTech growth. With a forecast to grow at the highest CAGR during the period (2018 to 2023), initiatives in various Asia Pacific countries are bound to continuously emerge. Locations like Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, and even Australia observed growth in the industry, with Singapore forecast to be Asia’s RegTech leader.

RegTech companies use cloud computing which gathers and shares information in real time. Applications can be used to automate processes such as predictive analytics to pore through big data. Looking at patterns and other regulatory failures, a RegTech firm can predict potential risk areas that companies can work on to improve their businesses. Automation also assists in securing systems and assuring that risks are dealt with accordingly.
