    Effective RegTech is about data not technology

    It is not surprising that RegTech attracted so much money and so many entrepreneurs as the Fintech start-up boom took off from 2012. Banks, asset managers and insurers were hit by successive waves of regulation in the long aftermath of the great financial crisis of 2007-08, and automation of transaction monitoring and reporting, KYC, AML, CFT and sanctions screening checks, data protection, mis-selling risk, cyber-security and even operational resilience was an easy sell. A future in which regulators were just another node on a blockchain network which hosted everything they needed to know seems more distant today than it did in 2017-18, and the RegTech sector is now consolidating. But as Rupert Brown, CTO at regulatory advisers Evidology tells Dominic Hobson, the hard work of mapping and then standardising regulatory events and data flows is now beginning.

    What FATF thinks about digital ID, RegTech and SupTech

    March 2020 was an important date in the history of digital identity. That month the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the international regulatory organisation that has for 30 years set the global standards in fighting financial crime, published a paper which stated that digital identity had “reached an inflection point.” If FATF thinks digital identity can make a contribution to customer due diligence, a financial services industry spending hundreds of billions on KYC, AML, CFT and sanctions screening checks ought to be interested, yet the response so far is muted. Dominic Hobson asked Tom Neylan, a senior policy analyst at FATF in Paris, what progress FATF detects.
