Our story

Having spent years inside regulated institutions we, Co-Founders Jason Boud and Dr Sian Lewin, both saw the promise of technology to manage the challenges and impacts of the wave of regulatory reform following the global financial crisis. The emergence of the ‘RegTech’ label in 2016 sparked our joint imaginations, describing the emerging innovative solutions to help regulated institutions meet their regulatory obligations.

We realised RegTech was a rapidly growing market. However, it is one where buyers and sellers of RegTech solutions were not being brought together with a common understanding of the problems facing the industry. So that’s why RegTech Associates was started, to help the industry and society in general realise the value of RegTech.

We both bring together a wealth of industry expertise and deep quantitative and qualitative research into the global RegTech Market. Now, we help RegTech vendors grow and regulated firms manage compliance more effectively.
