CFTE Launches RegTech Specialisation to Make Compliance Easier for Financial Professionals

CFTE announces a new RegTech specialisation covering extensive topics within compliance including KYC/AML, digital reporting, SupTech and data regulations.

Online PR News – 02-September-2022 – London – Since the 2008 financial crisis, the world has learned to become regulated. On top of that, cybersecurity risks and increased frauds arising from technological developments such as blockchain, crypto and fintech, are creating an increasingly complex compliance environment for the finance industry. Meanwhile, mass adoption of digital financial services leads to massive, or even infinite, amounts of data to be monitored. It is clear more supervision is needed beyond human capabilities. This is where the promises of RegTech lie.

The RegTech market that aims to automate regulatory compliance is set to become a game changer for the financial sector. Its market capitalization is predicted to grow to $23.76 billion in 2026, a three-fold increase relative to 2021. A likely focus shift by financial firms to RegTech would lead to a huge demand for digitally adept professionals. Hence RegTech becomes a new set of skills necessary to be acquired by all financial employees across many core bank functions of research, risk management and compliance.

In that context, CFTE is launching today the world’s first and most comprehensive programme on RegTech to provide knowledge to professionals and the skills for them to grow in the new era of finance.
