In the second of our RegTech Revealed webinar series we welcomed Jane Jee.
As well as being CEO of Kompli-Global Limited in the anti money laundering and anti-fraud space (helps people make good risk assessments a crucial part of compliance for regulated entities), Jane is also lead for Project Financial Crime at the Emerging Payments Association.
Sarah and Jane compared career paths into technology and specifically RegTech and the variety of backgrounds that can lead there.
Jane provided some useful advice and gave helpful examples from her career path including:
- how she became a Managing Director when there was a demerger by writing to the board (Jane admitted that she was encouraged by her husband as women are often still bad at self promotion) to let them know that she would be able to handle a promotion OR a redundancy;
- a pattern to follow from her working life. Whenever she takes on a new role in a new field, Jane likes to dive deeper with additional training, qualifications and reading from around the field;
- building up career capital by doing what you're good at and then taking it with you to new areas;
- the importance of support mechanisms and debunking the 'having it all' superwoman story.
Sarah and Jane enthusiastically discussed AI, data and technology and the significance of RegTech to the whole of the UK as well as the aim of a task force involving the FCA, Treasury and Home Office to provide a framework to move forward.
