8th December 2021
Zeidler Group, the technology-driven law firm is proud to announce its recognition as a RegTech100 company. The recognition follows the firm’s recent shortlist as a European Specialist Law firm of the year and recognition as an AIFintech100 which underlines the firm’s continued growth and success in 2021.
Now in its fifth edition, the RegTech100 list recognises the world’s most innovative technology solution providers that offer products and services in the areas of compliance, risk management, information security and financial crime. A panel of analysts and industry experts voted from a longlist of nearly 1,200 companies produced by RegTech Analyst, a specialist research firm.
RegTech Analyst director of research Mariyan Dimitrov said, “Banks and other financial institutions are investing heavily into AI capabilities to automate highly manual regulatory tasks, support digital onboarding processes and monitor for fraudulent activity.”
Zeidler Group launched its digital platform in 2016 and leverages cutting edge technology to create automated and streamlined workflows through its unique combination of legal and compliance oversight and digital innovation. Modules include fund registration, ongoing fund governance, knowledge hub, EMT / EPT, factsheets, counterparty due diligence and K(I)ID generators.
The law firm has expanded its use of digital innovation in 2021, incorporating AI to further accelerate its client onboarding and workflows. As part of Zeidler Group’s collaboration with the University of Swansea’s Legal Innovation Lab, AI, in the form of Natural Language Processing (NLP), is used to detect the context of legal documents and automatically map its structure to better automate legal workflows.
Additionally, Zeidler Group’s team of software engineers are working with NLP to further enhance its Counterparty Due Diligence (CDD) module. The NLP module can detect if a counterparty has already responded to a question, even if it is phrased differently, and map the appropriate response.
Reacting to the recognition, Prashant Patil, Head of Software Engineering at Zeidler Group said: “Our RegTech100 recognition is a testament to our talented team of software engineers who are passionate about driving continuous digital innovation and improvement in our platform, such as streamlined processes and implementing AI-driven workflows to ensure client satisfaction and product excellence.”
