Workiva Sponsors RegTech Data Summit 2019 to Advance Regulatory Technology Policy

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Data Coalition Summit will Address How Open Data Improves Accountability, Supports Data Analysis and Reduces Compliance Costs

Workiva (WK), the leading cloud provider of connected data, financial reporting and compliance solutions, will play a key role here today in the Data Coalition's RegTech Data Summit 2019.

Leaders from government agencies, Congress, regulated industries and technology companies will join open data advocates to explore the intersection of regulatory reporting, emerging technology and open data standards. The Summit aims to solve RegTech policy challenges facing government, regulators and the private sector.

Dean Ritz, Senior Director of Digital Reporting Strategy at Workiva, will address sustainable, responsible impact investing (SRI) – which accounts for 25 percent of managed investment assets in the U.S. – and how an open data supply chain can increase transparency and strengthen public trust in governmental projects.

Other speakers will address the benefits of digitizing industry processes, Standard Business Reporting, and open data standards including Legal Entity Identifiers. Attendees will also discuss the Financial Transparency Act and its role in shaping the future of regulatory technology.

“RegTech needs consistent data standards, workforce alignment and interoperable tech to be successful," said Nick Hart, Chief Executive Officer of the Data Coalition. “By adopting the open and non-proprietary data standards, the government can improve accountability, facilitate data-driven analysis and cut compliance costs."
