To compile the list, the RegTech 100 advisory board and analyst team examine a collection of over 1,000 solution providers shaping the future of the compliance, risk management and cybersecurity industries on a range of factors, including the impact on the problem being solved; growth, in terms of capital raised, revenue, customer traction; innovation of the technology solution offered; potential cost savings, efficiency improvement, impact on the value chain and/or revenue enhancements generated for clients; and how important is it for a financial institution to know about the company.
