More than 700 participants joined us in 2017 to talk about collaboration for innovation in regulation.

Banks, regulators and insurers met at the 24th RegTech Convention in Frankfurt from November 29 to 30 to discuss the future of regulation and new models for cooperation at the international level. Over the past 24 years, the RegTech Convention has developed into one of the largest conferences on regulation and is now an international exchange platform for supervisory authorities and regulated institutions. Both sides appreciate the opportunity for a direct dialogue.

I think it’s a very good opportunity for us regulators to share the experience and the plans with the participants about the challenges that they are facing with the implementation of our regulation.

For us as European supervisor such events are an important occasion to meet with the industry. Usually our counterparts are the national supervisory authorities. Today’s event is an excellent opportunity to hear what the industry is experiencing, the developments and challenges it is facing as well as to get direct feedback on our work.

It is very nice to be in a room together with regulators, supervisors, bankers and talk about innovations and how we can deliver better outcome

I must say I pretty much appreciate the opportunity to be here. I have learned a lot. It is really a good way of exchanging information between the different people that are speaking. In my role, I see one part of a picture. And being here I’ve been able to put it more altogether. So really great event.

Paul Janssens, Programme Director | Standards, SWIFT

I really enjoyed the conference. It’s a really good mix of people here and from my perspective it’s great to see also central bankers here and to have lots of interaction with them.

Daniel Hinge, News Editor, Central Banking

It was a very interesting occasion to exchange and cooperate on very important issues
