RegEd Hosts Seventh Annual Client Conference in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Sessions unite around empowering compliance and operations professionals to transform compliance from value protection to value creation by leveraging RegTech
RegEd, the leading provider of compliance technology solutions to the financial services industry, hosted the annual RegEd Compliance Alliance (RCA) client conference in Fort Lauderdale, FL, April 16-18, 2018.
RCA 2018 provided executives and senior managers from Compliance, Risk Management, Legal, Governance and Operations, including Licensing and Registration professionals, with the unique opportunity to share best practices, build critical knowledge, and engage with regulators and industry experts.
The theme of RCA 2018 was RegTech: Transforming Compliance from Value Protection to Value Creation. “In 2018, RegTech has become the necessary foundation for a comprehensive, proactive and efficient compliance program. Regulatory technology enables firms to shift the compliance function from value protection alone to a significant contributor of value to the organization,” commented John M. Schobel, CEO & Founder, RegEd, Inc. “This manifests in a positive impact on Rep/Advisor recruitment, the ability to deflect regulator attention by demonstrating a high watermark compliance program, and important compliance and business insights gained from aggregated compliance data. As we strive to show in all of our interactions with clients, and have demonstrated at RCA 2018, RegEd embodies RegTech’s value creation ethos. Put simply, RegEd is RegTech.”
The conference agenda featured sessions that delivered the latest information and expert insights surrounding the industry’s evolving regulatory and compliance concerns in an educational and collaborative forum. Amias Gerety, RegTech expert and Former Asst. Secretary for Financial Institutions, U.S. Department of Treasury, gave the keynote address at the conference. Mr. Gerety served as the President's nominee and as Acting Assistant Secretary for Financial Institutions at the U.S. Department of the Treasury from April 2014 until January 2017. In that role, he was the lead advisor to the Secretary on policies affecting financial institutions from prudential standards to cybersecurity, and from insurance to banks to emerging fintechs.
A program spotlight, “The State of Financial Services Regulation in 2018,” was presented by Roberto Rodriquez, Director of Regulatory Strategy at PwC, who spoke about the state of regulation in 2018 and important new regulatory agency appointments, how they are impacting enforcement and the likely longer-term impacts for financial services firms.
