RegTech: Top 100 Influencers

by | Jul 23, 2019 | Influencer Lists, ,

Why is RegTech so hot right now? Is it the fact that it can save teams a great number of man-hours? Or possibly that with new and challenging regulatory concerns tied up with the constant emphasis on cost reduction, RegTech is just what everyone needs.

Much like other SaaS solutions, RegTech can help quickly adopt and deploy new workflows without exhausting budgets when roadblocks appear. The solutions mean that teams can deal with the rate of regulatory change, and are able to continue supporting and growing their customer base. The industry, still growing and popular as ever, is expected to be a $12.3 billion industry by 2023. Given the speed with which this new technology can help get new products into new markets; making the research, registration and regulatory process a breeze, no wonder it’s so popular.

Disclaimer: As ever with these lists, it must be stressed that the ranking correlates to a strong indication of influence – however no definitive measurement of influence exists. The individuals listed here are undoubtedly influential when it comes to driving discussion around RegTech. Onalytica’s PageRank based methodology is used to extract influential experts on a particular topic and takes into account the number and quality of contextual references that a user receives – this allows us to identify Topical Authority (reference) – our priority influence metric. We analyzed topical authority via their social engagement on Twitter and how much influential experts were referenced in association with RegTech on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Forums, Blogs, News and Tumblr content. These calculations also take into account a user’s resonance (topical engagement) relevance (number of posts on topic, and % relevance – the proportion of their social content on the topic) and reach (number of followers).
