JWG RegTech 2.0 Conference, London -  7th February 2020

Winning in the decade ahead – where the regulators, regulated and leading technology suppliers come together in the spirit of collaboration, to discuss forthcoming challenges & define strategies on how to get ahead of the curve!

We are thrilled to report that our 5th annual conference, held in London, on 7th February was our best to date! A highly targeted audience of nearly 250 senior executives, from over 100 leading companies, spent the day with global regulators, discussing the new challenges ahead and investigating how the very best RegTech can make compliance strategies better, faster and more efficient. A day full of insight, collaboration and networking and we have lots of ideas about the next one. Get in touch with if you’d like to share your thoughts.

At a crucial point of inflection post financial crisis, the Financial Services sector faces 374 new legal challenges. New JWG research has revealed low levels of awareness to key shifts in the regulator’s RegTech framework. With this in mind, we have crafted a day of thought provoking discussions via the panels below:

 “A decade on from the crisis, there is another wave of legislation headed towards us. Through our extensive research this year we have found that generally, awareness levels of fast-moving, complex requirements is low. This conference is designed to help participants contextualise key issues and inform their strategies for effective deployment of new technologies in a better, faster, cheaper and safer manner. As highlighted by recent fines to BGC, Citi, Goldman Sachs, UBS and others non-compliance is dangerously expensive.”  PJ Di Giammarino, CEO, JWG


Throughout the day there will also be the opportunity to find out more about the RegTech Council, the new global not-for-profit public/private independent forum whose vision is the digitisation of regulations and compliance due to launch in March 2020.
