Subscribe to our newsletter

A-Team Group is delighted to partner with the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) to call for applications from UK RegTech businesses (specifically companies with a focus on regulatory monitoring, reporting and compliance) to participate in its upcoming 2019 UK RegTech Trade Mission to New York.

Taking place November 13-15 in New York City, the mission offers British firms the opportunity to showcase their expertise to the US market, engage with US regulators and VC investors, while gaining valuable insight into overcoming barriers to doing business overseas. Delegates will also attend the prestigious A-Team Group RegTech Summit NYC on November 14.

“The UK represents the cutting edge of regulatory technology, and our unparalleled sector expertise helps guide financial services firms across the globe,” says Antony Philipson, Consul General in New York and Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for North America.

“This special, DIT-hosted trade mission will give a select group of British RegTech firms the opportunity to showcase their unique solutions to the US market at a critical economic juncture for the industry. We’re excited to be partnering with the A-Team Group on this mission, and looking forward to bringing these companies to the New York RegTech Summit in November.”

“This mission in New York occurs at perhaps the most opportune time as it builds upon both the US-UK Financial Innovation Partnership, which established a regulatory working group in May, and the UK’s departure from the EU on October 31,” adds Tomas Helm, Head of FinTech at the Department for International Trade. “UK RegTechs continue to be on the frontline of financial innovation globally, and working with DIT, companies will get to engage with US financial firms who will have regulatory compliance at the top of their agendas.”

The UK RegTech Trade Mission offers participants a bevy of business-building opportunities, including three days of workshops, networking events, one-to-one meetings with business leaders and pitch coaching and investment pitch sessions.

Ideal candidates for the Trade Mission are companies that are actively entering the US market or who have US clients. Previous missions have seen UK companies learn best practices about US expansion strategy, as well as acquire new US accounts or raise funding from New York area VCs and investors.

To apply, companies should visit http://bit.ly/UKRegTechTradeMission and submit their application using the online portal no later than 23.30 EST on September 12, 2019.

Accepted delegates will be notified by September 19, and must secure their space in the delegation by September 26.
