To reaffirm Napier’s commitment to providing innovative regulatory and compliance solutions in North America, we’ve partnered with the Canadian Regulatory Technology Association (“CRTA”), a not-for-profit organization focused on solving regulatory challenges through collaborative efforts among key RegTech stakeholders.
As the newest member of the CRTA, Napier has formally aligned on both organizations’ shared goals of providing innovative regulatory and compliance solutions through next-generation technology. The new partnership also represents the latest stage of Napier’s expansion in North America, positioning the organization for continued growth in 2023. This follows a year in which Napier secured several prestigious Canadian and US client agreements, launched its next-generation Napier Continuum platform, and was recognized as ‘Best AML Transaction Monitoring Innovation’ by Aite-Novarica Group and ‘RegTech of the Year’ by the Fintech Awards London.
“I'm thrilled to officially announce our new relationship with the CRTA. Our shared goals made this partnership a natural fit, and we’re eager to drive our industry forwards in cooperation with key Canadian RegTech leaders through the CRTA,” said Napier’s head of Americas Aidan Houlihan. “The compliance and financial crime landscape is becoming increasingly complex, and I’m looking forward to being able to collaborate with experts in our space to develop the best solutions for modern-day regulatory challenges.”
“I’m extremely grateful to have Napier join the CRTA. RegTech is a burgeoning industry that is set to continue growing explosively in our new, interconnected global economy. In fact, our collaborative research with KPMG found that financial firms invested nearly $10.6 billion in deals involving RegTech suppliers in 2020. With that in mind, it’s crucial that our organization continues its endeavor to solve regulatory challenges through collaborative discussion and engagement in proof-of-concept initiatives, and I have no doubt Napier will be a valuable partner in furthering our mission.” - Donna Bales, CRTA founder
Since its founding in 2019, the CRTA has collaborated with regulated entities, technology vendors, regulatory bodies, government and professional service providers to facilitate dialogue, raise standards, and promote growth and innovation within the Canadian RegTech ecosystem. The organization’s Board of Directors includes Donna Bales, Paul Childerhose and Matt Fowler, who each offer expertise across capital markets, banking, technology and compliance.
