Regtech includes any use of technology to automate regulatory compliance or oversight processes. The term was first used to describe compliance technology used by regulated firms, but its meaning has broadened to include all technology used for regulation. Suptech is useful shorthand for the regulatory-specific uses of regtech.  

The session will explore the following issues:

  • The global state of regtech.
  • Regtech use cases and ideal target applications.
  • Objectives regtech can help achieve.
  • Inclusive finance and regtech.
