Today’s financial markets have evolved from traditional banks and investment funds to now include payment processing companies and cryptocurrency businesses. These financial technology firms (FinTech) need to thread the needle by complying with traditional regulatory requirements while continuing to innovate in ways not contemplated when those regulatory requirements were created. Meanwhile, both traditional financial institutions and FinTechs require the latest technology and software solutions to close compliance gaps with maximum efficiency, and they are turning to the new regulatory technology businesses (RegTech) for support. As this technology evolves, so too do regulatory expectations about the capabilities of compliance functions to detect and prevent illicit conduct.
