Die Unter­neh­men, die Lösun­gen für die Authen­ti­fi­zie­rung, das regu­la­to­ri­sche Report­ing, die Fraud-Bekämp­fung und das Risi­ko­ma­nage­ment anbie­ten, kön­nen sich kaum über man­geln­de Nach­fra­ge beklagen.

Zusam­men mit SIA Part­ners hat AEC Fin­tech die Reg­Tech Stu­dy: Euro­pean Land­scape (Sep­tem­ber 2018) veröffentlicht.

Aus der Einleitung:

Reg­tech in finan­cial ser­vices – a com­bi­na­ti­on of Regu­la­ti­on and Tech­no­lo­gy used to descri­be the appli­ca­ti­on of new tech­no­lo­gies to the world of regu­la­ti­on and com­pli­ance – has emer­ged as a sub-sec­tor of the tech­no­lo­gy indus­try in the last three years. This was fos­te­red by the par­al­lel deve­lo­p­ment of Big Data ana­ly­tics and Arti­fi­ci­al Intel­li­gence which found a natu­ral appli­ca­ti­on given the vast amounts of data pro­du­ced by banks.

With its matu­re and pro­mi­nent finan­cial ser­vices indus­try and strict regu­la­to­ry régime, Euro­pe has laid the foun­da­ti­ons for many high­ly inno­va­ti­ve com­pa­nies see­king to exploit the latest advan­ces in tech­no­lo­gy to help banks sol­ve their regu­la­to­ry challenges.

Whilst Reg­tech com­pa­nies are incre­asing­ly coming under the radar of finan­cial insti­tu­ti­ons and inves­tors ali­ke, rela­tively few stu­dies have been dedi­ca­ted to this nas­cent sec­tor. This paper aims to fill this gap by taking a clo­ser look at the various play­ers that make up the Euro­pean Reg­tech eco­sys­tem and how they posi­ti­on them­sel­ves to tack­le the regu­la­to­ry needs of banks.

Sia Part­ners and AEC Fin­tech bench­mark­ed 80 Euro­pean Reg­tech com­pa­nies with a view to unco­ver the trends that are dri­ving the­se companies.

The pur­po­se of this stu­dy is to pro­vi­de an in-depth ana­ly­sis of the Euro­pean Reg­tech sec­tor and give a com­pre­hen­si­ve over­view of emer­ging busi­ness initia­ti­ves that levera­ge new tech­no­lo­gies to help banks cope with their regu­la­to­ry obligations.
