CH&Co - Supporting the development and adoption of RegTech

  1. 1. CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. FCA – RegTech Call for Input: Supporting the development and adoption of RegTech January 2016 Stephane Eyraud seyraud@chappuishalder.com Nicolas Heguy nheguy@chappuishalder.com
  2. 2. 2CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Objectives of this presentation  Remind the context and objectives of the ‘RegTech’ Call for Input issued by the FCA  Provide our answers and insights to the questions in the Call for Input  Present Chappuis Halder’s expertise, especially in Regulatory and FinTech topics 2 Chappuis Halder & Co. is willing to contribute beyond this answer by being involved in the workshops planned in Q1 2016

  4. 4. 4CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Context of the Call for Input  In 2014 the FCA launched ‘Project Innovate’ to ensure that its regulatory regime supports the development of innovative financial products and services for the benefit of the consumers. As part of this project, a Call For Input has been issued in November 2015 to seek broader views on how to support the adoption of new technologies to facilitate the delivery of regulatory requirements – called ‘RegTech’  The UK wants to capitalise on the development and commercialisation of innovative financial services based on new technologies (‘FinTech’) and become the world’s leading FinTech hub, leveraging its favourable environment:  Position as a world-leading centre for financial services, with excellent financial services infrastructure  Presence of a large and technologically sophisticated customer base  Unique attractiveness in terms of capital availability, angel investors, welcoming and entrepreneurial culture  But in recent years regulation has increased and could be an obstacle to the development of innovation  Financial firms have focused the major part of their resources on remediation programs to the detriment of innovation  A significant number of Fintech firms seeking FCA approval are reported to have withdrawn their application due to the complexity and cost of the process* and despite the implementation of the regulatory sandbox  To prevent this, an effective regulatory regime is needed to support the development of new technologies tackling regulatory issues, to help financial firms:  Better manage the regulatory requirements, reduce their compliance costs  Ensure that regulations do not make processes difficult for consumers or limit innovation that could be good for consumers * Source: http://www.altfi.com/article/1425_authorisation_process_proves_too_much_for_some_platforms

  6. 6. 6CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Q1. What RegTech to introduce in the market? (1/2) Q1 - What RegTech could be introduced in order to make it easier for firms to interact with regulators, at a lower cost and administrative burden? Interactions between financial firms and regulators involve three parts: A. Financial firms as the providers of regulatory information In this regard, RegTech could be introduced to provide:  Big data capabilities: advanced data parsing & analytics allowing financial firms to parse large and analyse numerous databases of information, and then extract, compute and aggregate the relevant elements of information to be reported in near real-time  Machine learning & predictive analytics could be used for real-time risk/fraud identification through correlation of multiple sources of information  Automation: automating the manual reporting processes, and more specifically providing test robots capable of running and presenting the results of stress testing  Programmable reporting: using of a rule-based language and interface, to build flexible reporting that can evolve with regulation  Visualisation capabilities: tools could provide advanced visualisations for better decision making and information sharing  Immutable records: in this regards, blockchain could provide innovative solutions (shared trusted database of transactions for ownership transfer, or identities for AML/KYC purpose)  Cybersecurity alerts: reporting data breaches and serious alerts to the financial firms community (as part of CISP - Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership)  Third Party Risk Management: could act as service providers to financial firms in order to conduct due diligence, contractual provisions, compliance with privacy regulations, audit rights, etc. and possibly executed through the blockchain technology
  7. 7. 7CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Q1. What RegTech to introduce in the market? (2/2) Q1 - What RegTech could be introduced in order to make it easier for firms to interact with regulators, at a lower cost and administrative burden? B. Medium of communication (that should be part of the regulatory requirements) The minimum for UK regulators would be to provide dedicated reporting templates, as well as APIs for financial firms to provide the required information (for an easy integration into UK regulators’ systems). UK regulators could go as far as providing a comprehensive platform – and might even consider being its own RegTech - to push the regulatory requirements as well as gather the reporting from the community. C. Regulators as the source of the regulatory requirements and controls This is covered in the Q2 question.

  9. 9. 9CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. We think the FCA should keep its independent position in the ecosystem, focusing on the improvement of standards and guidance:  Offer a more comprehensive and user-friendly online service allowing the RegTechs to register to enter the market  Influence the local and European regulators to issue more readable and implementable regulations, providing standardised formats of implementable requirements (similar to the ‘SMART’ frameworks for management objectives: specific, measurable, attainable, reasonable, time-related)  Provide APIs for regulatory reporting as well as standard data sets when relevant (i.e. stress testing)  Facilitate the emergence of common RegTech standards through the organisation of workgroups (part of the present call for input)  Provide core training for major regulations, that every member of the community could follow (online platform)  Organise the Cybersecurity Threat Intelligence for the financial community (already implemented through CISP - Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership)  Cooperate in regulatory policy modelling to simulate the expected impacts of new regulations before the legislation and/or simulate the concrete impacts of existing regulations  Sponsor internships or research works on regulation and innovation in Finance in partnership with selected universities Q2. What role for the FCA? Q2 - What role would it be most useful for the FCA to play in order to foster development and adoption of RegTech in financial services, and what method would best suit this engagement?
  10. 10. 10CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Q3 - Are there any specific regulatory rules or policies that cause barriers to innovation or adoption of RegTech for financial services (products or processes)? Please provide examples of when these rules or policies have stifled development/adoption and describe the impact (e.g. delay, abandonment of project, economic impact). We are also interested in hearing about regulatory rules or policies that may extend beyond the UK regulatory jurisdiction including, for example, European or international policies and agreements. As a consulting firm working for banks, we are not able to comment specific rules on the adoption of RegTech by banks. But, from our engagements with financial firms, we have two observations:  The volume and complexity of existing and new regulations have had the unintended consequence of encouraging banks to focus on compliance rather than innovation  Because of regulatory uncertainty, financial firms are cautious about innovation by developing new products and using new technologies Q3. Policies causing barriers to innovation
  11. 11. 11CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Q4 - Are there any regulatory rules or policies that should be introduced to facilitate innovation and adoption in RegTech for financial services (products or processes)? Please provide examples of when the absence of these rules or policies has stifled development/adoption and describe the impact (e.g. delay, abandonment of project, economic impact). In connection with the two observations mentioned in our response to Q3: Volume and complexity  We agree with the Treasury proposal, in Fixing the foundations: creating a more prosperous nation that the regulators should seek to achieve a better balance between regulation and competition / innovation. Regulatory uncertainty  The regulations were developed for a branch-based banking system, with banks developing their own technology. We suggest that the regulators should be reducing regulatory uncertainty by giving guidance and expectations regarding the use of online systems and external suppliers of new technologies. Q4. Policies to introduce to facilitate innovation
  12. 12. 12CHAPPUIS HALDER & CO. Q5 - Which existing regulatory compliance or regulatory reporting requirements do you feel would most benefit from RegTech? All aspects of regulation would benefit from the introduction of RegTech:  AML/KYC requirements: start-ups could provide innovative solutions for the implementation of systematic and consistent KYC solutions across the entire organisation. For instance Tradle proposes such a service over Blockchain technology  Automated advice (in the UK): start-ups could offer automated services that make customers’ asset allocation decisions easier while also lowering costs  FDSF (Firm Data Submission Framework): bringing a strategic platform that could aggregate all required and documented data to comply with stress testing requirements  Capital assessment / Stress testing (CCAR, AQR..): advanced analytics capabilities can be used to design models and evaluate how thousands of variables impact banks  Trading book risk management (Volcker, MiFID, ...): algorithms could help control the margin requirements for each transaction and manage the market risk of the traders' portfolio  Reporting (Basel, Dodd-Frank ...): there is an opportunity for start-ups to provide near real-time data analysis and custom reporting leveraging new technologies  MiFID II: as it will be illegal to pay for research via trading commissions, a kind of marketplace for equity research could be provided by FinTechs to investment firms to face the unbundling issues of this regulation  Solvency II: creation of a connectivity between asset managers and insurers through a fund data utility to meet Solvency II Pillar 3 reporting and Pillar 1 asset data requirements Q5. Regulatory requirements to benefit from RegTech
