  • 5 Promises a RegTech Company needs to keep to be relevant in 2016

    Smaller picture of people starting a running race

    2016 has arrived and if we are to believe the talking heads on blogs, Twitter and LinkedIn, it is the year FinTech companies will continue to dismantle and replace banks and the RegTech force awakens.

    My prediction is that RegTech developments will certainly be closely watched by like-minded entrepreneurs, B2B focussed investors and regulated companies. The open question remains, who will actually emerge as relevant in the RegTech space in 2016 and why. I believe there are five promises a relevant RegTech company will have to keep in order to justify the current attention in this area.

  • Can Risk Management and Compliance be digitalized?

    Digitalization is a seemingly new buzz word on the agenda in many organizations as well as in pitch decks of savvy consultants. It describes the introduction of digital technology to an organizational process to make existing activities more effective or deliver a new service to the organization. Avoiding manual steps, human intervention and any unnecessary interfaces are commonly a focus point. Over the past decades, the term has been used in various contexts, from actually transforming physical processes like type setting to digital printing or using computer aided design instead of pencil and paper. However, in today’s practice, businesses usually mean leveraging X-as-a-Service offerings to apply flexible and scalable technology to optimize a specific business outcome when talking about digitalization.

    Picturesque castle with a forest in the background

    Der aktuelle Entwurf zur Novellierung der MaRisk fordert neben vielen weitreichenden Neuerungen in einem kleinen Satz im AT 4.3.2 “die Feststellung des Schutzbedarfs, die Ableitung von Sicherheitsanforderungen sowie die Festlegung entsprechender Sicherheitsmaßnahmen” für die Steuerung und das Controlling von IT-Risiken. Was hier kurz und knapp beschrieben ist, bedeutet für viele Organisationen eine wesentliche Änderung aktueller Prozesse im IT-Risikomanagement.

    Im Folgenden erarbeiten wir wesentliche Fragen, die sich bei der Durchführung einer Schutzbedarfsanalyse stellen und bieten Antworten zur Umsetzung einer nachhaltigen Lösung für IT-Risikomanagement. Diesem Ansatz folgend, sind Organisationen in der Lage, einem Regulator die angemessene und wirksame Umsetzung der Anforderungen aus der MaRisk AT 4.2.3 zu demonstrieren.

  • RegTech will disrupt Regulatory Compliance in unexpected ways

    Picture of buildings and the river Thames in London

    There is a new buzzword rocking the financial services industry: RegTech.

    According to the easy algorithm of combining a short form of an industry to be disrupted with the suffix “-Tech”, RegTech stands for “Regulation Technology”. To explain it, we have to make a little excursion to last week’s hot topic in the form of FinTech (Financial Technology).

  • State of RegTech - Part 1: Emerging Categories

    Emerging Categories

    Since the emergence of the term RegTech in mid 2015, we have been actively monitoring the market as well as shaping it as much as we can through our product Alyne and thought leadership in this space. In the following, I would like to share my observations by attempting a categorisation of some of the players and providing some predictions for the future of the market and giving some insights into our own strategy at Alyne for the next months and years in the following blog posts of this series.

  • State of RegTech - Part 2: Market Predictions

    Market Predictions

    The term RegTech turned one year old a few weeks ago and in its short lifetime has already lived through a quick hype that I believe may be giving way to a touch of reality. In the second part of our blog series about the State of RegTech, I would like to attempt some predictions for the future of the RegTech market.

  • State of RegTech - Part 3: Alyne's Strategy

    man standing in nature with a flash light pointing at the sky

    Alyne's Strategy

    In our blog series on the State of RegTech we have explored the current market segmentation and offered some predictions on the future of the industry. At Alyne, we consider ourselves a leading RegTech company and have been identified as such in recent studies (e.g. "100 RegTech startups to follow" by Jan-Maarten Mulder, "Top Regtech Performers" by Market FinTech, "International RegTech Companies Defining the $100-Billion-Dollar Industry" by Let's Talk Payments). We would therefore like to share some of our thoughts on the strategic development of Alyne in the context of the RegTech market development.

  • Supporting the development and adoption of RegTech

    Smaller picture of two business people walking next to a glass building

    This text was submitted as an answer to the UK Financial Conduct Authority’s Call for Input on Regtech. We’re publishing it also here on our blog to foster wider discussion.

    Based on our extensive experience in this field, we have been discussing several RegTech-related ideas here at Alyne (further thinking on this in our blog).

    In the tradition of other “-Techs” (such as “FinTech”), we understand RegTech as digitisation of regulatory compliance processes. Digitisation is of course a buzzword itself, but it helps to frame it more in the context of automation. In other industries and topic areas, it is envisioned to completely substitute manual processes at some point or at least augment human capabilities and capacity to rapidly scale and leverage the output of manual processes.
