Over the last decade, the financial services industry has seen a significant uptick in regulation with multijurisdictional and interlinked regulatory requirements impacting businesses globally. The key element of these regulations has been that financial institutions need to ensure that they are operating their businesses in a prudent and controlled manner. RegTech is a discipline which applies technological innovations to support compliance with regulatory requirements. It helps by allowing Financial Institutions to: Take Control, Be in Control, and Demonstrate Control of regulation through better defined, documented and auditable digital operations. This allows firms to break down regulatory silos and manage requirements holistically.
After the successful launch of innovation programs around Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and InsurTech, Synechron’s RegTech Accelerator program is the latest innovation from our Financial Innovation Labs (FinLabs). This program aims to bring increased control to financial organizations through technology. By addressing real regulatory business problems with a unique combination of business consulting, technology and digital experts, our Accelerators provide clients a foundation that can adapt to new and changing regulations, maximize efficiency, enhance data quality, and improve decision making.
Furthermore, Synechron’s RegTech Accelerator program brings together deep techno-functional expertise in both Risk and Regulation and uses industry-leading technology approaches to help solve problems across global regulations including Basel III, Fundamental Review of the Trading Book (FRTB), Books and Records requirements, and more. The objective of the RegTech Accelerator program is to empower global financial institutions not just to address compliance but to gain real business value and control while facing continued regulatory and cost pressures. In short – they can tackle challenges head-on.
