Where compliance policy meets technology sponsored by Hitachi
7 November 2018, 1 Lombard Street
This roundtable will provide an open but confidential discussion about how firms are leveraging emerging technologies to increase the effectiveness of regulatory compliance and supervision, with key learning points about how to leverage the power of natural language processing and machine learning to implement continuous capture of regulatory change, as well as managing the mapping between derived policies and the underlying technology workflow required to implement effective data controls.

Additional topics that will be covered in-depth and will be open to our invited participants to discuss include:

• Information Degradation: How gaps and ambiguity emerge when multiple business processes and parties are involved in each stage of implementation of a new regulatory obligation, i.e. Identification of regulatory changes; Mapping these to impacted data items, business areas, people and products; Definitions of policies and rules; Mapping these rules to specific technologies and technical controls
• Regulatory and Business Taxonomy Alignment: What approaches are available to ensure that regulations can be mapped at scale to data items from different lines of business, product categories and jurisdictions to ensure data quality and filter for relevant obligations? How can firms establish granular mapping of regulatory data onto individual policies, procedures, controls and records to pinpoints every compliance breach?
• RegTech Market Trends: An open look at collaboration and co-innovation opportunities between RegTech vendors, Regulators, Regulated Firms and Technology Companies

This evening event is open to Chief Data Officers, Compliance Officers, Legal Personnel and Risk Managers, as well as Senior Executives within Banks, Building Societies, Trading Houses and Insurance Companies.

How the RBS Remedies Fund will drive innovation and transform services for SMEs - sponsored by Unisys
29 November 2018, Duck & Waffle

This sector is overdue some technology disruption, with many businesses only staying with their current bank due to inertia. But SMEs will only make that move if new tech brings the opportunity for mutual partnerships to develop effective propositions.

FStech organises and hosts a range of exclusive intimate roundtables and bespoke events throughout the year, which are free to attend for financial technology professionals.

A roundtable is a form of discussion where participants debate specific business and technology topics. Each person is given equal right to participate in these discussions, which centre on current trends and issues affecting the sector.

Roundtable discussions and event write-ups are often published digitally and in print. In this case, the write-ups and comments are sent to participants ahead of publication and they are given the chance to approve their comments.

There is also the opportunity for FStech to work with you on networking drinks evenings, half-day conferences, seminars and much more.

If you have a roundtable or bespoke event topic in mind, please enquire and our in-house events team can build an event specific to your needs.

Recent and future FStech event topics include: digital transformation, data management, payments, cloud computing, compliance, blockchain and artificial intelligence. Click here to see our past events.
