The Regulatory Era Approaches – Fenergo’s Vision for 2024

The FinTech industry stands on the brink of a regulatory revolution. As financial technologies evolve at an unprecedented rate, so too does the complexity of maintaining compliance and integrity within the financial ecosystem. Tracy Moore, Director of Thought Leadership at Fenergo, boldly declares 2024 as the “year of regulatory revolution,” highlighting the critical need for a shift in how financial institutions approach regulation and compliance.

Navigating new compliance landscapes

The year 2023 witnessed a staggering 57% increase in penalties for compliance violations, culminating in a total of $6.6 billion. This surge reflects not only the increased oversight within the FinTech space but also underscores a pressing need for institutions to proactively embrace compliance due diligence. The objective is clear: minimize financial malpractice and ensure the protection of investor interests.

2024: A pivotal year for fintech regulation

Experts from both financial institutions and regulatory bodies are viewing 2024 as a watershed moment for the FinTech regulatory framework. This consensus emerges from a recognition of the dual challenges posed by the need to safeguard against financial malpractice and the imperative to protect investor interests. The evolving regulatory landscape demands a refined approach, making the upcoming year pivotal for the industry.

The impact of digital transformation

The relentless pace of digital transformation is embedding technology more deeply into the fabric of the financial ecosystem. Financial Institutions (FIs) of all sizes and geographical locations are facing intensified scrutiny. Emerging technologies, notably AI and data analytics, are disrupting traditional operations, necessitating the development of a resilient compliance framework. This framework must not only mitigate risks to customer privacy but also accommodate the rapid innovation characterizing the sector.

Strategic adaptations in a shifting regulatory environment

For brokerages operating across diverse asset classes and geographical regions, the tightening regulatory oversight compounds the complexity of navigating the FinTech regulatory landscape. The solution lies in forging strategic technology and liquidity partnerships with reputable and compliant providers. Such alliances are essential for successfully navigating the dynamic and increasingly complex regulatory environment.
