Ireland’s Regtech Advantage

Irish Regtech companies have established a world-class reputation for helping financial services customers to deal with the increasingly complex and rapidly evolving regulation – as well as continuous disruption and transformation – that characterises the industry today.

Irish leaders in this space combine deep regulatory expertise, with the technology leadership to be found in one of the world’s foremost enterprise software centres.

The Ideal Regtech Ecosystem

Ireland is an important operational hub for some of the biggest names in financial services, from Bank of America Merill Lynch, to Barclays and Sumitomo Mitsui and is the fourth-largest exporter of financial services in the world. It also has a deep heritage in the funds industry – in fact over 40% of global hedge fund assets are serviced in Ireland. As a result, its depth of regulatory expertise and calibre of talent is second to none.

On the technology side, Ireland is home to major operations for nine of the world’s top 10 tech companies and its home-grown SMEs are the most innovative in the EU. Irish Regtech start-ups therefore benefit from a uniquely concentrated and collaborative ecosystem and the opportunity to develop, test and deploy solutions that work for global players.

The value proposition for global buyers

As a result, global leaders in financial services, who need to balance compliance with the need to transform their business model, choose to work with Irish partners who can quickly design and implement sophisticated Regtech solutions as new regulatory requirements emerge. Increasingly, these customers are turning to Irish Regtech partners to look beyond compliance and facilitate operational excellence and product development with enhanced utilisation of data and insights.
