Exploring how financial firms can harness the power of data

2022 is shaping up to be pivotal for the way financial services firms engage with data to enhance their compliance and decision making. A wide range of pre-existing trends – such as increased cloud adoption, flexible working, compliance automation and data governance – have been amplified and accelerated by Covid-19 and related events. This has highlighted the problems with scattered and ungoverned data and the weaknesses of technology that is operated on-premise. 

Now, new priorities are emerging around how firms should harvest, process, store and use data. Business leaders know that data sitting in silos or spread across different platforms is difficult to use, control and oversee, but never before has the need for easily accessible data been so clear. The ability to access and use one’s data is not only vital for operational resilience and market abuse detection, but now one of the most important drivers for a competitive advantage due to the importance of speedy decision-making.

This interactive breakfast event will explore how financial firms can harness the power of data and discuss what effective data management looks like for compliance and beyond. 

Why attend Regs & Eggs

As the financial landscape becomes even more complex and competitive, this event will present the latest theories and thoughts around how effective data management can enable firms to enhance operational and compliance processes. In this interactive setting you will hear from leaders in the field of data science, artificial intelligence, compliance and trading about the key considerations for developing a futureproofed data strategy.

Agents of Change: The Role of Compliance in Building Better Data

Compliance and surveillance teams are storytellers with data. As that data becomes more multidimensional and interconnected, we are able to transition from static snapshots and linear analytics to true reconstruction of events and analysis of intent. Current engagement models require compliance teams to take a heavy role in the compilation and cross-linking of data in compliance-owned data lakes. However, there is the opportunity to influence upstream data owners to "bake in" multidimensional data linkage and richer data flows. This would have the dual benefit of providing cleaner and richer starting data, and reducing the risk owned by compliance teams.

AI and the Top 40

The current widespread excitement about AI is about the third time in its 70-year career that the discipline of AI has been at the top of the charts. After each previous Number 1 Hit, we've disappeared without much trace, and endured what researchers in AI call an "AI Winter".   Peter McBurney will explain why this history should lead us to be somewhat sceptical about many current AI claims.  In addition, he will talk about some of the challenges that developers of AI still face, most of which will require backing vocals and even instrumental solos from other disciplines and professions, especially from the law, economics, psychology, and even theology.

Global Head of Marketing, SteelEye



We launched our Regs & Eggs event series in 2017 - inviting industry experts to share their insights and views on the latest regulatory changes over breakfast (eggs to be specific). The last in-person event was hosted at the House of Commons in November 2019 and brought together speakers from the FCA, UnaVista, Baringa, Cruxy, ING and more.  The sole purpose of these events is to share knowledge and facilitate discussions with industry leaders about the key factors that impact financial services compliance.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we hosted our Regs & Eggs events online in 2020. The first one focussed on market abuse monitoring and included speakers from SIX Exchange, Baringa Partners and Finceler8. The second virtual event was about holistic surveillance and featured speakers from ING and Fidelity International. We also recorded a Regs & Eggs Video, where SteelEye CEO, Matt Smith, discusses key RegTech and regulatory reporting challenges with Dario Crispini, the CEO of Kaizen Reporting.
