A panel of analysts and industry experts assessed a longlist of nearly 1,400 businesses, which was produced by RegTech Analyst. They sought to highlight the technological solutions every compliance, risk and innovation leader in financial services must know about in the year of 2024.
RegTech Analyst director of research Mariyan Dimitrov said, “With tougher economic climate and the continued rise of AI, financial institutions are re-examining the compliance software’s true cost, namely whether a given RegTech solution truly will free up compliance staff for higher-level tasks and whether the software can scale, adapt, and get implemented efficiently.
