The Fintech Awards acknowledge and reward individuals, firms, start-ups and banks who are recognized as leaders and thought leaders in their area of expertise. Award nominations are open to those that devise and design new financial technology, those that implement systems, and those who adopt new systems and technology - which in turn enhances customer experience.

With almost 25 years of experience in regulatory management, BearingPoint is a well-established company that supports all players along the regulatory value chain with its innovative software solutions. More than 5,000 customers, among them large international banks and a major part of the largest European banks as well as supervisory authorities and central banks, trust BearingPoint’s RegTech products and services. This award clearly reflects our high coverage of regulatory and risk.
