The solutions RegTech firms create can include a variety of applications, including, risk management, data privacy and cyber-security, client and counterparty identification, transaction monitoring, conduct monitoring and risk reduction, regulatory change monitoring and regulatory intelligence, product compliance, regulatory reporting and GRC tools.


Is RegTech only for Financial Services?

No, absolutely not. There are many regulated industries who can and do use technology to help them with their regulatory compliance - these include healthcare, pharmaceuticals, transportation, oil and gas to mention just a handful. We can help you to identify use cases in other industries where your technology may be able to add significant value and where there may be a real appetite to buy.


What type of firms do you work with?

Generally speaking, we work with growth mode scale-up firms who have are established and have a validated product. We help firms to grow and scale to gain new and larger clients, and to increase their international presence.


I am an established firm and just need some help in running a marketing campaign or generating new clients, can you help?

Yes, absolutely, that is what we are here for. We can start with very small engagements, for example, creating a thought leadership article or a product brochure and work up from there. We have a team of sales and sales support people who can help generate and work a pipeline of new opportunities for you.


How are you different from a trade association?

We have very different goals - a trade association often represents the industry en-mass, engaging with stakeholders to make a case for the industry and what it does. We, on the other hand, are focused on helping you to grow your business, and to translate what you have into real sales achieving real business results.


How are you different from a general business accelerator?

There are lots of general business accelerators out there, some of them are provided by investors and others by government and quasi-government agencies to help firms to be more successful. We are different in two key ways: Firstly, we are subject matter experts in the business of regulatory compliance, no general accelerator has the depth of industry knowledge that we have access to. Secondly, we work with you at a very practical level, working on your product propositions, creating visibility and building your brand, and working to generate a pipeline of prospects that can turn into generating actual sales for you.


I have an idea for a product, but don't have a business and haven't yet started developing my proposition - can you help me?

Our focus is on already established businesses, you would be better looking for a business incubator to assist you in validating and refining your idea and establishing your firm.


Do you offer office space?

No, we are not a office centre and do not operate co-working spaces.
