What is RegTech? 

Regulatory Technology (RegTech) refers to the “use of technology to enhance risk management and regulatory compliance in financial institutions”. RegTech can be used for two main purposes: (1) combat money laundering (ML) and terrorist financing (TF), and (2) identifying suspicious activities. 

Why is RegTech important?

Needless to say, Covid-19 has led to a significant increase in financial crimes. While financial institutions’ (FI) goal is to ensure business continuity and adapt to the change in operations, they also need to focus on tackling the emerging threats from financial crimes, such as ML, TF, frauds, etc. The pandemic creates more challenges for the FIs regarding how they conduct their risk management and compliance function.

An example of a challenge would be, companies face the issue of conducting anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) due to remote work arrangement and a possible change in approval protocol. However, with eKYC, remote digital onboarding of customers can be conducted. 

Therefore, FIs need to embrace these RegTech solutions to curb the crimes.
