The RegTech (regulatory technology) industry has grown to be one of the most important sectors within financial technology over the past three years. Over $14bn has been invested in RegTech companies since 2016, as financial institutions grapple with the complexities of new regulatory requirements.
As a result, this year’s process to identify the leading 100 RegTech companies was more competitive than ever. A panel of analysts and industry experts voted from a longlist of over 1,000 companies produced by RegTech Analyst. Fifty-three new companies entered the RegTech100 for 2020 and the finalists were recognized for their innovative use of technology to solve a significant industry problem, or to generate efficiency improvements across the compliance function.
“Employing RegTech solutions to modernize the compliance function is now mission-critical for financial institutions globally,” said Mariyan Dimitrov, head of research at RegTech Analyst. “Even though 51% of RegTech100 companies are based within the UK or US, the spread of RegTech innovation has seen companies from another 23 countries make the list.”
