Global RegTech firm, Arctic Intelligence, recognises the importance of data sovereignty for its clients. The latest release of Arctic Intelligence’s cloud-based risk assessment solution, Risk Assessment Platform (RAP), now includes global architecture that ensures client data resides in a data store within their selected region. This enhancement comes into effect 9 September 2020 and addresses concerns across the globe in meeting privacy regulations within the country of origin.
Darren Cade, Chief Operating Officer, states, “To put it simply, this enhancement means that Arctic Intelligence will not need to set up separate environments in different parts of the world”.
Arctic Intelligence is ISO270001 certified for Information Security and together with the data sovereignty enhancement, it means more clients can leverage the convenience of a cloud-based RegTech solution without the concern of off-shore data. It removes the need to install software in their own environment. The new architecture includes:
- a single entry point for global clients to the Arctic Intelligence cloud platform
- a single user account across multiple regions
- support for regional databases
- a central hub for replicating non-sensitive data such as templates
Cade adds, “If a client registers in a particular region, all of the client specific data and information, such as their financial crime risk assessments, is stored in the relevant regional database. We believe this to be market-leading architecture that will provide great benefit to all of our clients globally”.
Arctic Intelligence believes that in order to combat the perils of money laundering, terrorist financing and other financial crimes, it is important to combine a standardised risk-based approach and the use of technology.
A new research piece commissioned by UK-based RegTech Recordsure is exploring the enablers and inhibitors of innovation amongst wealth and financial management firms in a Covid world.
As markets, regulations and consumer behaviours shift, there is an irony that increased digitisation is needed more than ever, yet innovating is made difficult as organisations grapple with the disruption brought about by the pandemic.
Against this backdrop, the impact on the wealth management and financial advice sector is yet to be fully realised. With a client base rich in entrepreneurs whose own financial wealth is heavily dependent on the high street, the knock-on effects to the industry could be significant.
As pressure grows on firms to demonstrate value to clients despite the disruption forced on them by Covid, digitisation has been accelerated across the industry. Change is far from over though. As the industry adapts, market players will be fighting for the same, albeit, diminished share of wallet, and must think on their feet to stay in the game.
With old challenges like risk management and quality assurance only made more difficult through remote working, the whitepaper explores the barriers preventing digital progression as well as the enablers for innovation within the industry.
Some of the sector’s longest-standing and most pioneering businesses, disruptors and forces for change have contributed their insights to the whitepaper including industry heavyweights from Standard Life, Close Brothers, The Wisdom Council, Arbuthnot Latham & Co, Heronsgate Capital, Money Honey, Wealth Dynamix and TCC.

Senate Committee Interim Report
Deborah Young, CEO of the RegTech Association sees the recommendations made by the Committee as a great step forward in recognising that RegTech can be a significant export for Australia and that there’s more investment required to assist the industry in reaching its full potential.
Deborah said today, “Australia is ranked third in terms of global RegTech centres of excellence – and can deliver value throughout the Australian economy – from small business through to the largest corporate through to export dollars – but this is hampered by the fact that investor interest is limited. Inviting investment from superannuation was a welcome recommendation to bridge the investment gap that is holding RegTech back. BCG estimates Australian RegTechs have access to less than 1% of the global pool of funding for RegTech. ” Young adds, “Having Government helping to break down procurement barriers is a significant recommendation too, as it would cut the time to value for Government buyers – accelerating delivery of RegTech to our community.”
Referencing Ms. Kate Carnell from the Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman, “RegTech is a real opportunity to make it easier and simpler for small businesses to cut the red tape and to get on with running their businesses” and furthermore that “Government procurement for RegTech solutions is particularly important during this economic downturn”. The RTA would welcome more reflection on that.
This opportunity is now closed.

Since the committee finished its last round of public hearings in February, Australia’s economic and financial environment has changed dramatically as a result of the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic.

In light of current circumstances, the committee is not going to press ahead with its previous timetable. Instead, the committee has re-opened its inquiry submission process to enable submitters to provide further input to the committee on what the critical needs of the sector are at this time. Read more
