Fintech A.M.: 2-12-2017

Our guide on regtech essentials defined the sector, explained its significance for fintech, how it has changed recently, who the significant players are, and what’s in store for the future, which we also dealt with in our trends in regtech piece, particularly given the European regulations coming into effect in 2018: PSD2, MiFIDII, and GDPR.

The report explains the virtues of regtech, but is cautious in evaluating it as a panacea for all compliance challenges.]]>
