The Suptech landscape: Key trends & integration of end-to-end solutions


Wednesday 28th September

Suptech represents a core strategic priority for central banks and financial authorities from both developed and emerging markets. According to a Bank for International Settlements (BIS) report published earlier this year, we can now see Suptech innovation and investments in various forms in pretty much all jurisdictions across the globe.

These efforts are driven by a combination of factors and variables, including, amongst others; the increased complexity and interconnectedness of the financial system; the growing volume of granular data that supervisors need to collect and operationalize the opportunities created by technological advances; as well as higher expectations from the stakeholders and the society.

In the inaugural episode of the Suptech Broadcast focused on the key developments shaping the Suptech landscape, discussing practical use cases and applications of the technology, as well as highlighting the emerging trends within institution-wide strategies and innovation roadmaps. Guests Joanne Horgan, Suptech Product Director at Regnology and Dr Simone di Castri, Co-Head and Co-Founder at the Cambridge SupTech Lab joined FNA for this session.


The session covered:

  • The main factors shaping the Suptech landscape today
  • The impact of Covid-related disruptions on Suptech priorities
  • How Suptech innovation can be more risk resilient
  • How central banks can balance the ‘tactical’ and the ‘strategic’ gaining some low-hanging fruit success in the short run while also focusing on medium and long-term goals
  • The extent to which cross-jurisdictional Suptech collaboration will drive sustainable innovation
  • Technological advancements in digitisation and the future of the Suptech landscape
