Financial Service RegTech Revenue will Reach $6.45B

Agile regulation technology (RegTech) solutions are in high demand in the global financial services industry. Financial service organizations are embracing RegTech solutions for enhanced efficiency, proactive compliance, real-time risk monitoring and improved governance.

Collaboration with RegTech solution providers will be key for financial service organizations to gain a better return on investment, mitigate implementation and complex IT infrastructure barriers, and enable quicker conversion to dynamically evolving regulatory changes.

The RegTech solutions market is expected to reach $6.45 billion by 2020, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 76.1 percent by 2020, according to the latest market study by Frost & Sullivan.

"A rising demand for easy-to-use, regulatory-compliant solutions for anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) requirements are steering RegTech start-ups to enter these segments and -- with the help of cloud computing, big data analytics and machine learning technologies -- provide innovative, affordable and effective solutions," said Dhanvin Sudarsan, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Venture capital firms are actively investing in innovative RegTech companies that provide cutting-edge solutions. Regtech companies active in the financial service sector include:
  • FundApps, which offers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that delivers a cloud-based, managed service to automate shareholding disclosure by organizing regulatory information, and combining regulatory compliance content and technology.
  • AQMetrics, a cloud-based platform that offers an effective, innovative, and simplified solution to address regulatory risk and compliance issues.
  • Scaled Risk, which integrates in-memory analytics and big data to provide real-time, scalable, and flexible risk management solutions for banks and other financial services companies.
  • Onfido, which leverages machine learning to provide next-generation background checks for banks and business for their KYC, AML, and credit risk checks.
  • Qumram, which provides a fully transparent and compliant digital audit trail of online, mobile, and social interactions. Every interaction is recorded and can be played on request without any technical assistance. This aids the digital compliance of financial organizations.

"While technology adoption and regulatory compliance are clearly the way forward for financial service organizations, complex data verification, costly legacy systems, uncertainty in upcoming regulatory reporting, and conflicting data sets are factors hindering RegTech market growth," concluded Dhanvin.

Collaborative strategies will empower new digital growth opportunities and swift adaption to a dynamically evolving ecosystem, said the Frost & Sullivan Digital Transformation team. There's a significant upside for the adoption of emerging applications for cognitive systems and blockchain technologies within this sector.

Flexible Working: Why Company Culture Matters

The main reasons for the Great Resignation are obsolete leadership, fearful middle managers, and a toxic culture that hinders employee engagement. Perhaps that's why some organizations are still struggling with the consideration and development of a flexible working model.  They're incapable of evolving to a more enlightened approach to work where employees are treated with respect. They're stuck in a bygone era of the 20th-century industrial revolution where 'shareholder value' tops all other values, and where spreadsheets and financial data analysis drives all key decision making. We should not be surprised that 76 percent of human resource (HR) leaders now feel that hybrid work challenges an employee's connection to organizational culture, according to a recent survey by Gartner. A 2022 poll of HR leaders reveals the most challenging aspect of setting their hybrid strategy is adjusting the current organizational culture to support a hybrid workforce. In fact,
