Regtech provides a range of benefits for wealth management firms. You can use it to automate compliance processes, meaning your business can meet regulatory requirements across multiple jurisdictions.

Regtech also helps you ensure that you are handling client information responsibly and protecting customer data from breaches of sensitive information by automating the identification of suspicious activities or transactions on your platform.

Regulatory technology is increasingly becoming an essential part of operating a successful wealth management firm because it helps you achieve these goals:

  • Automate compliance processes across multiple jurisdictions.
  • Meet regulatory requirements across various jurisdictions.

If a wealth management firm does not comply with U.S. state and federal regulations, they can be fined or lose its operating license.

Fines range depending on the type of violation committed by the firm (e.g., whether they were repeat offenders).

Fines can also be much higher if the firm holds a fiduciary responsibility over client funds or securities as part of its business activities. These penalties can reach six figures per offense.

Regtech also enables firms to leverage data analytics, machine learning, and AI technologies to identify potential risks while mitigating them at an early stage.

Regtech tools can integrate with existing systems such as CRM (customer relationship management), PMS (portfolio management system), or ERP (enterprise resource planning).

Moreover, they can provide real-time insights into how investments are performing based on the latest market trends so that you can make informed decisions quickly, if necessary, to meet and exceed your client’s expectations while meeting regulatory requirements at all times.

Regtech can identify potential issues before they become problems. For example, suppose you have more than one person working on a file or document at any time. As a result, Regtech will alert you when someone has made changes without authorization so that you can prevent unauthorized access to the client’s confidential information by other employees in your firm who might not be aware of all relevant details about a particular client situation or transaction involving them.
