Recorded Webinar: Leveraging NLP for regulatory compliance

14 June 2022

As regulatory compliance becomes more complex, requires larger volumes of data – both structured and unstructured, and comes under greater scrutiny by regulators, financial institutions are looking for RegTech solutions that can help them increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve the accuracy of regulatory data.

One such solution is natural language processing (NLP), which can help compliance teams not only question regulatory texts and updates, but also manage and automate vast quantities of unstructured data.

This webinar will consider the potential of NLP in regulatory compliance, how best it can be deployed, useful RegTech tools, and the benefits it can deliver. It will also present case studies of NLP in compliance, and review its future potential.

Listen to the webinar to find out about:

  • Progress on the use of NLP in regulatory compliance
  • The potential of NLP to drive automation
  • Best practice approaches to implementation
  • Challenges presented by the use of NLP in compliance
  • Case studies of successful implementations
