Looking at how the crisis has changed both how regulators work themselves, and how it will change the sectors they oversee – how will watchdogs have to use technology to maintain oversight, and how will they need to adjust their expectations of providers in the new financial reality?
The scale of the impact across the economy was recently set out by Lord Tyrie, the chair of the Competition and Markets Authority, who published a report on 21 July stating that the pandemic is likely to cause enduring changes to consumer behaviour, businesses, supply chains and the regulatory environment.
Such widespread changes will have profound effects on regulated markets, the companies who operate in them, and the regulators who oversee their work as they seek to support the country’s economic recovery from Covid-19 – while ensuring that regulated industries remain competitive and provide protection to consumers.
This roundtable will look at how watchdogs can stay alert to these changes, and how they might need to change how they work to adjust to the new normal – and how technology might help them do this.
Potential discussion points:
How can regulators ensure organisations stick to new Covid guidelines – how are they themselves going to change the way they work?
How has the coronavirus pandemic affected regulated sectors, and how will they operate differently in a post-Covid world?
What will regulators need to do differently, and what role will digital innovation play in regulation?
How can data be used for regulators to navigate a post-Covid world and improve customer engagement?
As regulated organisations embrace new technologies, how can regulators also adapt with limited resource?
What tools can be used for regulators maintain trust and transparency within their sectors?
The discussion will take place on 10th September from 11:00 to 13:00
