    The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, Cambridge Judge Business School has just released their report titled "The Global COVID-19 Fintech Market Impact and Industry Resilience Study."

    The study, jointly carried out with The World Bank and the World Economic Forum, was made possible by the support of the Ministry of Finance, Luxembourg and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

    The key findings include:

    - Firms in Advanced Economies (AEs) still dominate in terms of transaction volume, exceeding those in Emerging Markets and Developing Economies (EMDEs)

    - Growth rates for the digital payments vertical (the largest sector in global transaction volume) are higher in EMDEs than AEs

    - Fintech firms operating in jurisdictions with more stringent COVID-19 related lockdown measures grew faster than those in less stringent lockdown

    - A large proportion of responding firms' clients are new customers and from groups that have faced challenges in accessing financial services via traditional intermediaries - pointing to potential contribution that fintech firms are able to make to financial inclusion

    - Responding firms perceive the sector to be relatively resilient with firms reporting increases in revenue and turnover across all verticals

    Arctic Intelligence is currently conducting their annual AML Insights survey. Taking part in the survey will give you full access to the paid version of their AML Benchmark Report.

    Some insights from the 2021 AML Benchmark Report include:

    - 53% of companies perform an enterprise risk assessment once a year, with 25% conducting them as often as business changed.

    - 21% of respondents were unsure of how long an enterprise risk assessment actually took, because it was either an external process or a fragmented internal one.

    - 69% of respondents claimed that digitisation had provided at least two significant improvements for their risk assessment process. These include more effectiveness in understanding AML risks and demonstrating compliance, as well as having more confidence in their risk assessment process with a centralised documentation repository.

    Congratulations to RegTech Association member FrankieOne, for winning this year's #AccelerateR Award 2022.

    Each year, The RegTech Association awards a Founder-Led RegTech firm with best pitch by awarding our #AccelerateR award. In 2021 we saw the momentum building around Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impacts for companies and institutions across multiple sectors and the growing level of importance of ESG to investors. This year's PitchFest focus is based on this momentum with applicants asked to show how their solutions aligned with ESG and how it demonstrates deep connection and potential impact to ESG goals and objectives.

    FrankieOne were the judges choice due to being the best at articulating the problem they solve, the solution and market appetite, the business model and scalability, relevance to ESG and most of all, the best pitch delivery on the day. 

    Rather than awarding a trophy, the Association has made a donation to the First Nation’s Foundation – an Australian Indigenous Financial Literacy Foundation – thus supporting greater financial inclusion.
