The next generation of regulatory technology (regtech) is emerging as a dramatically new set of processes, standards and solutions than anything previously seen in financial markets. This is the creation of a new and complex technology ecosystem that requires careful attention by practitioners, regulators and vendors alike.
A critical question is how systems are monitoring this evolution, especially when artificial intelligence and algorithms are driving decision making. The question of “Who Is Watching the Watchmen?” is directly applicable, especially when regtech takes over important compliance functions. Much of today’s technology is focused on supporting human decision making, but even then, accurate data drives end results.
This report explores how select vendors are positioning themselves in an age of big data, low latency, and AI/machine learning. From business process management to networks to standards development, these firms are truly creating the next generation for the market. Cybersecurity will always be of overreaching importance, but the complexity of specific vendors is also critical to understanding this vibrant space.
This report should be read by financial technology professionals across the spectrum of financial markets. While by nature Finadium is focused on capital markets, the vendors and associations discussed in this report have applications for the majority of financial services activity.
