US and Europe's Leading Tech VCs to Discuss RegTech Investment at the SaaS Lounge Webinar
- 19.10.2022 09:35 am
Representatives from Flashpoint VC, Lytical Ventures, the Sony Innovation Fund, and Talis Capital will gather online on November 3, 2022, to discuss the investment in regulatory technology and what it means for tech companies, consumers, and investors everywhere.
According to FinTech Global, dozens of RegTech companies raised more than $18 billion in 2021, doubling the previous high of $7.8 billion in 2020. Despite worries about global economic instability, investment into RegTech companies remained strong and consistent in 2022 too, according to Thomson Reuters. Jiko, a cash management fintech based in California, recently raised $40 million in Series B funding. Significant investment from venture capitalists is not expected to slow down in the coming months, either, as companies look to make their compliance processes more efficient and transparent amid thousands of new complex regulations coming into effect.
Evgeny Likhoded, CEO and founder at Clausematch, says: “Companies need to evolve their approach to compliance from reactive to proactive and dynamic. That’s why the trend of compliance departments turning to regulatory technology and automation is accelerating. We are seeing a growing investment and M&A activity in the Compliance and RegTech market, because the regulatory burden is increasing and compliance is not optional. The recent spotlight on ESG also means that companies need to address risks posed by the "extended enterprise" and push their ESG obligations down their supply chain. What follows from that is the requirement even for small suppliers to maintain and prove compliance with obligations imposed by their enterprise customers.”
In an online forum next month, hear from top investment managers like Costantino Mariella of Sony Innovation Fund as well investors like Steve Berg of Lytical Ventures, Donatella Callegaris, Flashpoint, Vasile Foca, Talis Capital, and Evgeny Likhoded and Yan Shtefanets of Clausematch. What significant shifts in RegTech are coming to the industry? Which solutions catch the eye of VC’s and why? Which compliance tools and functionalities are most useful to a company?
