    • Increase efficiency through better monitoring and sampling 
    • Reduce human errors 
    • Reduce the impact of ongoing regulatory change
    • Improve the effectiveness of risk management 

    Key challenges of RegTech: 

    • Data (quality, security, privacy)
    • Integration with the existing legacy systems
    • Lack of API capabilities within financial institutions
    • Lengthy procurement processes 
    • Limited awareness of RegTech solutions
    • Regulatory standards across EU Member States

    A level playing field 

    As the RegTech industry continues to evolve, The EBA is committed to technological neutrality to ensure no one vendor has a monopoly in the market. This will require constant monitoring and sharing of information on technological developments. 

    In Q4 2021, the EBA will organise a public online webinar to discuss the findings of the RegTech market analysis in the EU. Find out more on the EBA website.
