Copy of Innovations in RegTech Solutions and Research

With direct reference to the recently published Finance for Ireland Action Plan 2021, this webinar brings together practitioners, RegTechs, academics and researchers.

RegTech can be thought of as an inter-section where the horizontals of underlying technologies and innovations meet the vertical of Financial Services compliance.

This panel led discussion will focus upon facilitating the interactions between these horizontals and verticals that can support the development of RegTech ecosystems.

This webinar will provide a range of perspectives from the panellists, an open Q&A, and has four primary objectives:

  1. To promote collaborations between the Irish & Scottish RegTech ecosystems;
  2. To enhance awareness of innovations in RegTech solutions and research;
  3. To create a deeper understanding of the major compliance/regulatory pain points of the large Financial Services providers, and
  4. Identify innovative RegTech solutions.

At the end of the webinar, we will propose actions to promote engagement with the newly formed RegTech Alliance. Join our panel-led discussion and be part of the journey.
