Supervisor of the Future:
SupTech Frontiers

THIS
TRAINING PROGRAMME IS FOR YOU,
IF YOU….

  • Seek to develop insights into the complexities of emerging supervisory environments
  • Aim to deploy suptech applications to steer data-driven supervision
  • Are ready to embrace emerging data science methodologies to enhance supervisory intelligence
  • Currently hold positions such as supervisor, regulator, policymaker, economist, examiner, actuary, analyst, data scientist, or technologist within regulatory, supervisory, or policymaking authorities

Power the paradigm shift

in financial supervision

In an era of constant change, the financial sector is undergoing a rapid digital transformation that brings forth new challenges for supervisors. These changes, driven by technological advancements, data science breakthroughs, and innovative business models, have disrupted markets and financial supervision itself. As a result, supervisors must adapt to the emergence of new risks, reassess their priorities, implement risk-based approaches, and allocate resources effectively to ensure the sector’s oversight remains robust. To navigate these complexities, supervisory authorities are now developing suptech-augmented frameworks and tools.

Within this dynamic landscape, supervisors often face a steep learning curve. They need to grasp the intricacies of market activities, products, and institutions, as well as comprehend the trends of increasing datafication, decentralisation, and globalisation of finance. Additionally, understanding emerging consumer behaviors, needs, and expectations is crucial. At the core of this course lies the formulation of upgraded risk-assessment methodologies and data architectures that are firmly grounded in the evolving market dynamics. Furthermore, this transformation is placed within the broader context of a cultural shift towards “digital-first supervision,” enabling agencies to undergo incremental and realistic transitions towards this approach.

Through a 6-week immersive online experience that draws on real-world case studies leveraging the Lab’s digital tools, you will walk away with:

  • Comprehensive understanding of the interplay between data, technology, and evolving business models in the financial sector
  • A discovery of opportunities and challenges in the application of innovative technologies
  • A pragmatic framework to assess and address the impacts of fintech and digital assets innovations, the related risks across supervisory areas, and ongoing market innovations
  • Insights to formulate and develop digitally-first supervisory responses
  • Reframing capabilities for supervisory processes, frameworks, and approaches
  • The ability to identify supervisory use cases that suptech can upgrade or rearchitect
  • Creative and strategic thinking for present and future suptech applications
  • An innovation-inspired and digital-first mindset integrated into your agency’s operations
