The RegTech Association will officially launch tomorrow with a high-profile event in Sydney, where the first-of-its-kind group will be hosting an exclusive speaker panel, including some of the industry’s key influencers, movers and shakers; who will discuss the state of play and future opportunities for growing the RegTech eco-system in Australia and beyond.
With an opening by Matt Symons, Red Marker CEO and RegTech Association Director, and moderated by Reinventure Group’s MD, Danny Gilligan, the audience of over 100 key stakeholders from major banks, start-ups and governing bodies will also hear from Lisa Schutz, CEO, Verifier; Karen Malzard, Head of Risk, ANZ Wealth and Anthony Quinn, CEO of Arctic Intelligence and AML Accelerate.
GRC Solutions Managing Director and Chair of the RegTech Association, Julian Fenwick, said, “Our aim for the launch is to bring together key stakeholders and influencers, shining a light on the important role of collaboration in enhancing APAC’s growing RegTech industry.”
The event, being hosted by international commercial law firm, Allens, will officially introduce the 13 founding Association members to the industry, which includes companies from a diverse range of RegTech areas - from Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Solutions, to AI Compliance Monitoring. Association Members GRC Solutions and Arctic Intelligence were recently ranked in the top 100 most influential RegTech firms by PlanetCompliance, an industry leading digital network.
By aiming to promote good corporate practice in compliance management, the Association will create a network of changemakers who engage with eco-system stakeholders, advance the use of technology and enhance regulatory compliance outcomes.
With a unified focus on succeeding through promoting an inclusive environment, the Association will encourage government, industry bodies, private and public organisations, corporates, small businesses and start-ups to stand together as advocates for collaboration and RegTech in Australia and the APAC region.
Corporates, individuals and government regulators are encouraged to get on board with the Association at this exciting time, as they shine a light upon Australia’s growing RegTech eco-system.
