Third annual RegTech 100 list announces the tech companies transforming compliance, risk management and cybersecurity

The world’s most innovative technology solution providers that address the challenges and opportunities of dealing with regulatory issues within financial services, were announced today by RegTech Analyst, a specialist research firm.

The RegTech (regulatory technology) industry has established itself as one of the most important sectors within financial technology after seeing tremendous growth in the past three years. Over $14bn has been invested in RegTech companies since 2016, as banks and other financial institutions grapple with the costs and complexities of regulatory requirements.

In line with this growth, this year’s process to identify the leading 100 companies in the sector was more competitive than ever. A panel of analysts and industry experts voted from a longlist of over 1,000 companies produced by RegTech Analyst. Fifty-three new companies entered the RegTech100 for 2020 and the finalists were recognized for their innovative use of technology to solve a significant industry problem, or to generate cost savings or efficiency improvements across the compliance function.

“Employing RegTech solutions to modernize the compliance function is now mission-critical for financial institutions globally” said Mariyan Dimitrov, head of research at RegTech Analyst. “And even though 51% of RegTech 100 companies are based within the UK or US, the spread of RegTech innovation has seen companies from another 23 countries make the list.”

A full list of the RegTech 100 including SEDICII is available at www.RegTech100.com.

Maxi Zoo Santa PawsIreland’s largest pet retailer, Maxi Zoo will make Christmas extra special not only for pampered pets, but also less fortunate animals over the festive season. You are invited to pop into your local Maxi Zoo store in Waterford throughout December and support their Shelter Wishes charity campaign, which will help animals less fortunate than your own this Christmas.

Each store has selected its own Shelter Wishes animal charity partner, who will compile a wish list of products available in store which their beneficiaries need and want. These gifts, of varying value, can be purchased in store, donated and placed under the Shelter Wishes Christmas Tree.

Maxi Zoo Waterford’s Shelter Wishes partner is Deise Animal Sanctuary, which offers a second chance for animals in crisis.

Each charity involved will collect the donated gifts from Maxi Zoo stores on Christmas Eve, ensuring that needy animals are not forgotten this Christmas. Anthony Cremin, Marketing Manager at Maxi Zoo said “At Maxi Zoo we love animals, and we believe all animals deserve the very best. The thought of animals suffering is at the forefront of our minds, especially at Christmas, and this is why Shelter Wishes was created – to make life a little brighter for less fortunate animals at this time of year.”

For those pets lucky enough to have a loving home year-round, Maxi Zoo will host a very special FREE Christmas “Paw-ty” in stores on Saturday, December 14th. The big man himself, “Santa Paws” will be in store from 12 to 4pm, and pet owners are encouraged to bring their fur babies along and take their own special Christmas photo with the man in red. 

Anthony added “On December 14th, we’re inviting our customers to come along with their pets and take a fun photo with Santa Paws. The day will also be a great opportunity to support our Shelter Wishes campaign, and also pick up those all important Christmas presents for the pets in your life – from festive jumpers to tasty advent calendars.”

New - Half Day Certified In-Company Training Course Driving for Work - Under the Influence of Intoxicants (defined as drugs and alcohol) View details here

Breathalysers must be available in all new cars from 2022

The EAP Institute has developed a new half day in company training programme driving for work under the influence of intoxicants (defined as drugs and alcohol) in response to the Health and Safety Authorities highlighting of work related vehicle fatalities and employers responsibility in managing "grey-fleet drivers".  A recent Road Safety Authority report has highlighted the risks of driving with prescription drugs. This programme was launched on World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, on Sunday 17 November 2020.

The European Council in a landmark decision had announced that breathalysers must be able to be fitted into all new cars from 2022, cars made before 2022 will have to comply with the new rules by 2024. This ruling will apply to all grey- fleet drivers who use their own vehicles in the course of their work.

The EAP Institute is currently taking bookings for this training from January to March 2020. Please advise if your company is interested in this training. The preparation of this training requires 5 - 6 weeks advance notice to allow time for preparing the manuals and processing the application for certification.
