RegTech London – Event Summary

RegTech took place on 3rd October 2019 in St Paul’s London. The event was aimed at exploring how the financial services industry can leverage technology to innovate, cut costs and support regulatory change. St Paul’s saw a culmination of start-ups, technology providers, financial institutions, regulators and practitioners for a day of networking, seminars and collaboration.
