Just in case you have missed our recent invitation to attend our joint webinar with the SME Finance Forum: Virtual Roundtable Series #29 – The Role of Alternative Data in Ensuring Access to Finance for SMEs post-COVID.   The information is posted on the BIIA events page, which includes a registration link.

BIIA is also working on a webinar relating to REGTECH:  We will be talking about why RegTech and information businesses are a perfect synergy.  Specifically, we will be covering:  What is RegTech and why is RegTech booming?  What can and should Business Information providers be aware of when it comes to RegTech and what are they already doing?  What do banks & other firms want to see from the ecosystem? (ie. an end customer perspective).  How to activate collaboration (BIIA & how RTA can accelerate collaboration & adoption).  Please stay tuned for further announcements. Target date late June 2021.

We thank our members for their contributions and support.

Best regards
