Wolters Kluwer: Leveraging Technology to Manage Regulatory Change

Posted: 1 July 2019  |  Source: Wolters Kluwer


Experts from Wolters Kluwer Compliance Program Management and Chartis Research discussed ways in which financial services firms are tapping artificial intelligence (AI) to more effectively manage their regulatory compliance obligations in a June 4, 2019 webinar, “Leveraging AI for Regulatory Change.” 

Nearly half (48.5%) of 215 financial services compliance and risk managers polled during the webinar on the use of artificial intelligence in helping manage regulatory change anticipate that their firms will increase investments in automation, including AI, in the coming 12 months.  However, half (50.4%) of this same financial services audience acknowledged that their firms are still using manual spreadsheets—as opposed to automated workflow systems—as the primary means for managing regulatory compliance.

Following are results from three polling questions posed:
