Sandy Kumar, Head of Financial Services at Grant Thornton UK LLP, commented: “We’re delighted to celebrate the individual and collective successes of these companies in driving forward-looking technologies and innovations in financial regulation. As the regulatory environment continues to evolve and firms are required to maintain considerably higher reporting and compliance standards, these companies are helping ensure the financial system operates in as efficient and effective ways as possible."
Rupert Bull, CEO at The Disruption House, added: “We are excited to support Grant Thornton in the production and launch of this inaugural RegTech Index. The Disruption House’s mission is to accelerate the adoption of early and growth stage technology providers by removing uncertainty about their enterprise readiness and viability for the purchasers of their services. Our analytic model is based on extensive research into the performance of smaller, technology focused, high growth companies."
He added, "The Index helps to reduce the need for financial institutions to continually conduct extensive evaluation activities, reducing the cost of sale, and time to market, for the RegTechs covered, together with the cost of adoption, and time to innovation, for the potential purchasers.”
