  • Measuring the qualitative – or how tech can save financial services from itself Apr 6 2017 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jane Walshe (Enforcd), Malcolm Wright (Thomson Reuters), Mathias Wegmueller (Qumram)
    2017 is shaping up to be the year in which RegTech catches up with FinTech and the sector is brimming with innovative ideas that can help regulated firms address regulatory requirements in an efficient and cost effective way.

    But how good is this technology, really? Can everything that is promised be delivered? At it’s best, RegTech can help firms to price and quantify the risks around a firm having a poor culture, and technology can solve problems of capturing qualitative concepts, such as behaviour and culture, and embedding these in to a firm's operational/conduct risk model.

    In this discussion, Jane Walshe of Enforcd is joined by other RegTech pioneers to discuss what RegTech can do, and also possible pitfalls to be avoided in its use.

    Success in life or business is about solving problems and sticking to a plan. Yes many of us have ideas for success but how many of us have fallen by the wayside as day to day events impact upon us and drive us off course.

    This means that our ideas remain as dreams, when if documented and carried out they could drive us forward to success.

    •How you can map out your ideas for the future
    •Develop a plan of action that works
    •Techniques to take your ideas out of your head and into your business.
