Top 10 Regtech Companies in 2023

Regtech helps companies meet their regulatory and compliance obligations and is one of the fastest-growing aspects of fintech; becoming ever more important to the day-to-day operations of businesses in the UK. 

Regtech not only offers a way for businesses to speed up time and labour-intensive processes but also allows them to minimize human error and perform these functions more accurately.

Whilst different sectors will have different regulatory requirements, currently it is meeting AML requirements in a way that satisfies regulations without slowing down business processes and making customers less profitable which is causing the most widespread pain in the industry.
