server-1032730_640

In the penultimate article of our series of 5 Top RegTechs, we look at those in the category of Data Warehousing. This regards the access and management of data. The simple storage of the massive amounts of data that financial firms create, receive and have to collect is a challenge by itself, be it through onsite database centres or cloud computing. Many providers combine their with other RegTech categories, in particular with the reporting and monitoring of data as it is only logical to attempt to combine data management with analytics. Cloud computing and virtualization are the key drivers here as well as the need to analyse non-relational data types. Trends like big data and data lakes have changed the data warehouse market significantly and it becomes clearer no one size fits all. A large number of companies can be found in this field and we tried to focus on storing and making data accessible with a view to enable clients to comply with regulatory obligations. Following is our selection of 5 Top RegTechs for Data Warehousing:

AssetLogic

Offices: Based in London and San Francisco

Founded: 2015

Description: Fund data management is a challenging job with large amounts of data that, in the best case, should be accessible to internal stakeholders as well as regulators to ensure efficient use and reduce costs. That’s the challenge AssetLogic is tackling with its web-based service that allows any member of the fund industry to create an online central data and documents repository, which aggregates data and documents from any internal or external system into one online location. Interesting fact: While their offices are in London and San Francisco, all AssetLogic data, intellectual property and corporate governance are actually within the jurisdiction of Luxembourg since it provides the highest levels of data privacy, security and performance and is at the same time a world leading fund center.

Privitar

Offices: Based in London

Founded: 2014

Description: Privitar focuses on an essential aspect of data management from the start: Privacy protection. This is evidenced by the fact that their solution was actually developed considering this point from the start and at every stage of development rather than addressing the issue afterwards. Sensitive data can be masked or anonymised in compliance with regulatory requirements to regions or departments without a significant impact to data utility and ensure compliance with data protection legislation.  Data can in this way accessed safely by internal users or third parties for further analysis. Their partnership with Cloudera shows that data management solutions do not be exclusive but can essentially complement each other depending on the service and a customer’s needs.
