The RegTech Convention 2019

The 26th Annual RegTech Convention is taking place this 2019 as a two-day event spanning from November 26th to 27th. Hosted by BearingPoint, the event has grown into one of the largest conferences on regulation and RegTech in Europe. The event hopes to amass over 700 participants from 30 different countries.

The target demographic, or rather people who will benefit from the event including stakeholders and professionals directly involved in the European banking sector, insurance companies, international financial institutions, central banks, and regulatory agencies.

What to Expect? The Motto of RegTech 2019!

There is no denying the fact that modern technological innovations have had a huge influence in the financial industries - some good, some bad, and most still being in the grey area. As such, the event will focus on a productive debate highlighting the opportunities as well as the risks brought forth by these technologies.

As such, the motto for RegTech 2019 is finely printed as “Transformation & Agility.”

Here are some of the questions that are going to be raised, as well as discussed thoroughly at the event:

  • The future of banks, supervision, collaboration models, in the light of the new transformations.
  • Will the technologies improve our agility as well as productivity in the long run?
  • What is the best approach to this rapid onset of change and transformation?
  • What is, if any, the best practice, or “ideal financial regulation” in this context?
  • Are agile concepts viable in the new regulations? If so, by what extent?

And much more.

Once the event gets going, it will immerse you in engaging panel discussions, a regulators’ conference, multiple presentations, which all end with a quick debate on the pros and cons of Basel IV.

Day two will be more focused on lengthier discussions covering a quick review of RegTech and future outlook, followed by implications of Abacus and DaVinci in the future of baking, and the likes.
