FINRA RegTech Conference Reviews AI, RegTech Adoption and Compliance Challenges (Part Two of Two)

Regulatory technology (RegTech) can help financial services firms comply with legal requirements by, among other things, automating processes and digitizing records. Although RegTech can reduce costs and increase efficiency, it does not come without challenges, such as properly training systems with appropriate data. FINRA recently analyzed these and other issues in a conference focused on RegTech that featured regulators, financial services firms and subject matter experts. This two-part series covers the second half of that conference. This second article examines the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence; approaches to the adoption of RegTech; and associated compliance challenges. The first article discussed the portions of the conference that focused on digital identification, suspicious activity reporting and machine learning. For coverage of the first half of the conference, see our two-part series on understanding regulatory technology: “Tools, Challenges and Regulators’ Views” (May 1, 2019); and “Current Uses and Deployment Considerations” (May 8, 2019).
