Regulatory Technology Insights

Firms are turning to technology at a record rate thanks in large part to the pandemic. According to industry analyst Greenwich Associates58% of firms invested in third-party surveillance technology in 2020almost double from the same period in 2019. This is supported by the findings in Thomson Reuters' Fintech, RegTech and the Role of Compliance Report 2021: of the 400 compliance and risk practitioners surveyed, 70% said the pandemic has increased their reliance on technology.

But while firms are making progress with the digitization of their compliance programs, there is still work to be done: a recent OCIE Risk Alert noted technology gaps as an area of deficiency in investment adviser compliance programs.

Our regulatory technology professionals develop resources and share insights to help firms understand the impact of technology on risk and compliance and how they can best incorporate technology into their own programs. Below are our most recent insights.
