Over 450 people registered for our The Future of Regtech 2022 Keynote and Panel Discussion on 13 Oct 2021, a jointly hosted event organised by the Manchester Worldwide S.E. Asia Centre in Singapore, in collaboration with the University’s East Asia Centre in Hong Kong.

The virtual panel discussion saw great success, with high interest and turnout despite the HK signal no. 8 typhoon warning. There was an amazingly positive response from our student and alumni population, with around 177 participants attending the event. The virtual discussion was led by esteemed keynote speaker Andrew Glover, ICA Chief Examiner Asia & Director of Compliance Education, APAC at International Compliance Training Academy Pte. Ltd, and joined by panellists from our Singapore and Hong Kong alumni network- Mr Daryl Pereira, Partner, Head of Cyber at KPMG Singapore, Manchester Global MBA Alumnus, Dr Amanda Lim, Director at ACH Worldwide, Project Supervisor of AMBS Global MBA, Manchester Global MBA Alumna, and Mr Chye Kit Chionh, CEO & Co-Founder, Cynopsis Solutions. The panel had an insightful discussion about the verticals of Regtech, the impact of Covid19 on the Regtech industry, the risks and implications of Regtech, including cyber-security, etc., and the critical questions to ask when assessing suitable Regtech options for organisations needs. 

During the 1.5 hour-long sessions, our panellists also discussed real-world examples of Regtech to provide further exposition and extrapolation, focusing on the Regtech ecosystem in Asia, particularly Singapore and Hong Kong. The event was well-received by participants, and the Q&A has also led to some insightful answers from the speakers. We look forward to having more of these webinars soon!
