How Regtech Ensures Compliance in Treasury

Capital Markets CIO Outlook | Wednesday, November 04, 2020

Firms are eyeing technological innovations to address compliance issues as well as to remain updated as per the evolving regulations.

FREMONT, CA:  As regulations evolve with time, businesses are paying close attention to enterprise-wide compliance efforts. Financial organizations are reviewing procedures throughout their business units and geographic boundaries to enhance visibility into their regulatory compliance as well as address compliance risks. As businesses progress geographically, treasuries increasingly have to comply with several local and international regulations. That is the reason regulation technology is essential to manage treasuries’ compliance.

Like a winning team that requires a playbook from which they can extract insights, treasuries can put in place a similar proactive framework for addressing compliance. Without a game plan, new regulatory requirements might catch the treasury by surprise. Regulations may be introduced in short notice or, in some cases, even without notice, but devising a game plan to respond to changes will assist treasuries in offering a streamlined process for effectively catering new requirements. New compliance challenges need modern tools, and these must be globally dynamic. Regtech can utilize data sets for offering unique and timely insight into automating compliance, regulatory processes, and risk management tasks by aggregating data from various sources.

Regulatory technology also promotes automation across treasury processes, freeing human resources to focus on regulatory compliance and its effect across the organization. Additionally, for treasuries that lack liquidity, resources, and capital, these new technologies are often offered in a cloud model. This can reduce the burden of using internal IT staff, keeping the overall cost of ownership down, and aiding the treasuries stay on the latest version regulation for improved performance all around.

Huge reputational risks and penalties mean that for most of the treasuries, compliance is not an option but a mandate. Moving to regtech is essential in aiding treasurers to manage regulatory compliance. Regtech is on the path to making tremendous growth, as regulators promise an increased level of control as well as oversight than ever before.
