The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority issued a white page discussing regulatory technology developments in the securities industry, and possible benefits and implications of these developments. Among other things, FINRA noted that regtech developments have significantly impacted firms’ surveillance and monitoring activities and potentially will allow a greater volume and variety of information to be “readily” analyzed. Additionally, regtech startups and incumbents are introducing solutions to enhance customer identification for know-your-customer purposes. These developments could help members’ compliance and anti-money laundering activities. However, FINRA cautioned that the use of enhanced systems could have implications for firms’ supervisory control systems, outsourcing oversight, security, and customer data privacy. FINRA will accept comments on topics raised in its white paper through November 30.
