Keynote: Spotlight on RegTech: Keeping pace with change

While firms continue to look at efficiencies through technology it is increasingly important to take stock of the rate of change and thematically where they’re likely to come from in future. With the birth of new asset classes, increased market fragmentation and ongoing regulatory flux, companies continue to struggle with this exacerbated rate of change. In this keynote, we will explore how times are changing and how to prepare.
