Hope might be in sight with the advent of an effective new vaccine, but the global pandemic has changed the way we work forever, and it is becoming increasingly clear that the business environment will be irrevocably changed by the 2020 experience. Remote engagement has become more important than ever, and agility and versatility have become some of the most valuable characteristics in this new normal. At the same time, regulatory oversight is becoming increasingly rigorous as authorities race to combat the unique challenges of a remote working society – while the ongoing challenges of regulatory compliance have by no means disappeared.

Providing a unique platform on which to discuss these most pressing of issues, A-Team Group is building on the success of its pioneering virtual events earlier in the year to present our biggest and most ambitious program yet. The RegTech Summit Virtual event will run over five days from November 16-20, bringing you daily live streamed sessions from some of the most experienced voices in the industry through a range of keynotes, presentations, fireside chats and panel discussions.

We’ve got an exceptional line-up of stakeholders from across the global RegTech community: including influential RegTech practitioners, innovators and entrepreneurs, along with unique insight from regulators including Bank of England, FINRA and ESMA. These are joined by experts from top financial institutions, solutions providers and consultancies, all of whom will come together to explore how RegTech can assist and evolve to meet the complex challenges of the current climate.

Keynote speakers including Linda Coffman, EVP of SmartStream RDU; Beate Born, Head of Strategic Projects, Investment & Trading Platforms at UBS Wealth Management; Antony Phillipson, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for North America and Consul General in New York; Matthew Vincent, Director of Regulatory Reporting Strategy at UnaVista; and Bill Hauserman, Senior Director, Compliance Solutions at Bureau van Dijk.

The first day focuses on the global outlook for regulatory compliance and RegTech in a post-Covid world; while the second explores what the new regulatory and reporting environment might look like post-Brexit and how financial institutions should prepare. Wednesday November 18 will review global regulatory priorities and best practices for regulatory reporting efficiency; while Thursday looks at how to best digitize onboarding, KYC and AML with RegTech. Finally, we finish an action-packed week with detailed discussions on how to maintain resilience and manage evolving risks in this brave new business and operating environment. In addition, the winners of the A-Team Group Start-Up Elevator Pitch Competition will also showcase a range of the most cutting edge new solutions on the market each day.
