  11. 11. COMPLIANCE MODERNIZATION REQUIREMENTS THE MODERN DAY COMPLIANCE FUNCTION IS MARKED BY SEVERAL KEY CHARACTERISTICS Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 10 These are driven or facilitated by emerging technology trends and capabilities. People • Elastic Workforce - Trained resources that support subject matter advisors (SMA) and business as usual (BAU) staff as needed • Cost efficiencies with center of excellence (COE) or business process outsourcing (BPO) Technology Architecture / Platform • New Open / API-based architectures that allow “plug-in” of new technical capabilities to add, upgrade or swap components much easier, thereby facilitating faster integration of RegTech solutions • Rapid adoption of state-of-the-art RegTech solutions as they reach maturity • Robust, secure and scalable Data / Information • Data quality is high quality and data sets are fit for purpose • New Data sources can be quickly onboarded into evolving analytical library End-to-End Process • Machine Learning and Intelligent Automation embedded in process where available (e.g., surveillance) • Integrated Case Management to handle Regulatory and Compliance issues across the enterprise Analytics, MI and Reporting • High Quality Management Information (MI) Dashboards and Business Intelligence (BI) • Standalone and integrated analytics across Compliance functions
  12. 12. Analytics Domain Expertise RegTech Mkt Knowledge NEW SKILLS ARE REQUIRED IN COMPLIANCE TO EFFECTIVELY LEVERAGE FINTECH Copyright © 2017 Accenture.

COMPLIANCE/REGTECH COLLABORATION BARRIERS AND REWARDS Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. There are some significant barriers to increasing collaboration between Compliance and RegTech, but there are many potential rewards as well. RegTech collaboration brings increased scrutiny, and Regulators are bringing big data and analytics to their Surveillance toolkit. RegTech collaboration requires significant investment. Compliance budgets cannot fund the innovation needed to modernize capabilities. Scrutiny is magnified Compliance budgets are built for BAU – not innovation Leadership in Risk & Compliance tends to take a conservative approach, which limits willingness to invest and leverage newer and unproven technology solutions. Limited willingness to take risks when investing in newer capabilities BARRIERS BENEFITS / REWARDS Risk Data Aggregation Data utilities to allow efficient distribution and storage of data in secure and controlled environments Forecasting & Scenario Analysis Risk-management solutions that include portfolio simulation and regulatory compliance reporting Trade Surveillance Software to help reconcile positions (e.g., cash, Forex) and reconstruct trades KYC / Client Identification Solutions to manage client onboarding processes and conduct due diligence reviews Transaction Monitoring Applications to scan transactions to help determine potentially suspcious or fraudulent activity Employee Monitoring Automated solutions that monitor and interpret voice and eCommunications Semantic technologies that assist with reg interpretation and managing of jurisdictional requirements Reg Interpretation & Management

  15. 15. SMOOTHER PATH TO COLLABORATION NEW PERSPECTIVES ARE EMERGING, MAKING IT EASIER TO COLLABORATE AND PARTNER SUCCESSFULLY Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 14 BANKS & FIRMS ORIGINAL PERSPECTIVE ON COLLABORATING • Mistrust of regulators (viewed as police) • Mistrust of vendors and capabilities • Conservative approach to adopting new technology • Reserved approach towards collaboration • Not open to sharing data and info externally (“closed loop system”) NEW PERSPECTIVE ON COLLABORATING • Open to collaboration and joint activities • Increased appetite for innovation BARRIERS • Lack of leadership support • Silo’d organizational structures • Inflexible architectures • Legacy systems • Lack of needed (technical) talent and skills • Lack of resources • Conflicting priorities • Lack of vision and/or innovation strategy
  16. 16. SMOOTHER PATH TO COLLABORATION NEW PERSPECTIVES ARE EMERGING, MAKING IT EASIER TO COLLABORATE AND PARTNER SUCCESSFULLY Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 15 FINTECHS & REGTECHS ORIGINAL PERSPECTIVE ON COLLABORATING • Unwilling to accept criticism and feedback (hubris) • Limited scope of offering (specific use cases) • Selective “partnering and collaboration” only to improve their offering NEW PERSPECTIVE ON COLLABORATING • Open to partnering in mutually beneficial way (willingness to adapt product) • Increased appetite for innovation BARRIERS • Lack of industry / regulatory knowledge • Limited resources • Cultural fit with prospective partners • Immature offering • Evolving value proposition (“solution without a problem syndrome”)
  17. 17. SMOOTHER PATH TO COLLABORATION NEW PERSPECTIVES ARE EMERGING, MAKING IT EASIER TO COLLABORATE AND PARTNER SUCCESSFULLY Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 16 REGULATORS ORIGINAL PERSPECTIVE ON COLLABORATING • Limited awareness of specific innovations and capabilities provided by RegTechs • Conservative mindset towards adopting new technology • Limited support of innovation • Lack of clarity on their specific mandate to foster innovation (i.e., who is responsible) • Limited coordination across other regulators NEW PERSPECTIVE ON COLLABORATING • Increased level of support towards innovation • Increased promotion and facilitating industry discussion on technology adoption • Participation in industry forums & sandboxes • Willingness to mentor (“office hours”) • Increased focus on new entrants • Increased fostering of innovation and competition (e.g., OCC FinTech charters) BARRIERS • Taking a firm position invariably results in debate and stakeholder reaction • It is not clear what kind of new or evolving regulation are required that focus on FinTech • Long standing mistrust of regulators (i.e. viewed as “the police”) • Despite increase use of technology, shortage of technology expertise within regulators themselves
  18. 18. CULTURAL FIT AND STEREOTYPES THERE HAS TRADITIONALLY BEEN A GAP BETWEEN PERCEPTION AND REALITY THAT HAS INHIBITED COLLABORATION Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 17 BANKS & FIRMS FINTECHS & REGTECHS REGULATORS How they view themselves… How others see them… • Leading edge • Flexible • Technically advanced • Noble & changing the world for the better • Technically advanced • Cool • Protectors • Noble & changing the world for the better • Important • Difficult to work with • Too large and inflexible • Not innovative • Uneducated on the ways of the industry • Arrogant • Inexperienced • Confusing from a technical point of view • Enforcers • Indecisive • Unfair / Biased in their regulation • Unapproachable
  19. 19. FI AND FINTECH COLLABORATION FINTECH INNOVATION LAB SURVEY Finding #1: There’s a disconnect between FIs and FinTechs on the scope and purpose of Proof of Concepts (POCs ), which commonly end up dragging for months with no clear success criteria or exit strategy. Finding #2: FIs and FinTech companies highlight different areas as problematic when moving from prospecting to procurement. Finding #3: FI processes are too complex and onerous for small FinTechs. Finding #4: FIs and FinTechs disagree on the rate of live implementations achieved with FinTechs believing the success rate is higher than FIs (<25% convert to implementations according to FIs surveyed). Finding #5 FIs are working more actively with regulators than FinTechs, with 60% of FIs surveyed claiming they are actively working with regulators but only 17% of FinTechs are doing the same. Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 18 Several key findings were uncovered in our recent survey of 35 financial institutions (FIs) and 52 FinTechs from the FinTech Innovation Lab accelerator program: Source: Accenture 2017 FinTech Survey (35 Financial Institutions, 52 FinTechs)
  20. 20. FI AND FINTECH COLLABORATION BARRIERS TO ACHIEVING SUCCESS BARRIERS TO COLLABORATION mostly originate in the cultural clash between highly regulated, control-driven FIs and nimble and innovation-driven FinTech companies. Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 19 FIs & FinTechs operate very differently and have sharply different views of their experiences working together: FINTECH OPPORTUNITIES get bogged down in lengthy and diffuse approval processes within FIs - FinTechs advocate for POCs that are 1 month or shorter but commonly end up in approval processes of 3+ months with no clear success criteria or exit strategy and spending time that could be productive on administrative activities. FIS AND FINTECH COMPANIES have different perceptions of collaboration barriers - FIs see regulation, compliance and security as the biggest hurdles to advancement. FinTechs cite issues related to lack of cooperation from FIs. Source: Accenture 2017 FinTech Survey (35 Financial Institutions, 52 FinTechs)
  21. 21. FI AND FINTECH COLLABORATION FI ACTIONS TO IMPROVE SUCCESS RATE BE TRANSPARENT with the FinTech companies you’re collaborating with and agree on the scope, timeframe and exit strategy for the POC. Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 20 There are ways that FI can make themselves more FinTech-friendly: SPEED UP AND SIMPLIFY your processes – consider how a small company will find dealing with you - consider streamlining the POC approval process and creating a “fast track” procurement process for FinTechs. COLLABORATION WITH FINTECHS has a higher probability of yielding benefits if targeted to solve a specific business issue or problem. CREATE SANDBOXES that FinTech companies and FIs can use effectively for the POC. Source: Accenture 2017 FinTech Survey (35 Financial Institutions, 52 FinTechs)
  22. 22. FI AND FINTECH COLLABORATION FINTECH ACTIONS TO IMPROVE SUCCESS RATE LEARN TO SPEAK the same language as FIs and recognize and understand the stumbling blocks that are holding back progress. Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 21 Similarly, there are steps FinTechs can take to make themselves FI-friendly: REGULATION, COMPLIANCE AND SECURITY concerns are the top reasons for not proceeding with a POC, according to 60 percent of the FIs surveyed - FinTechs would greatly benefit from a better understanding of these concerns and should work alongside FIs to find solutions. UNDERSTAND THE SPECIFIC business or industry need first, then build or tailor the solution around it – many new FinTechs have solutions in search of a problem or are exploring the re-purposing of a solution intended for a different problem.

  23. 23. WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW STEPS TO FOSTER COLLABORATION AND INNOVATION IN COMPLIANCE Copyright © 2017 Accenture. All rights reserved. 22 BANKS & FIRMS FINTECHS & REGTECHS REGULATORS • Create and migrate towards Open Banking (API-based) architectures that lend themselves to plugging in new technology capabilities • Hold internal discussions to obtain buy- in and ease constraints to achieving collaboration and adoption of technology • Define a FinTech & RegTech strategy and the desired outcomes to help drive actions and decisions on prospective partners and solutions • Continue to study & learn about regulatory obligations • Meet with regulators early and often to obtain their guidance and point of view • Refine value-proposition and capabilities to focus on relevant compliance use cases (define the problem you are solving before building the solution) • Embrace technology as a way to lower the overall cost of compliance in the industry • Define new standards / protocols to facilitate collaboration (e.g., data sharing, APIs, etc.) with an eye on eliminating unnecessary barriers and fostering innovation • Actively promote and participate in regulatory sandboxes to gain early understanding of evolving technology and potential risks that may need to be addressed
