Sian founded RegTech Women in 2019 after noticing that despite there being many fabulous women working in RegTech, there was no community bringing them all together.
In her day job, Sian is Co-Founder at RegTech Associates where she works with technology clients to help them refine, grow and scale their RegTech products and companies and with regulated firms to ensure they select the solutions that meet their regulatory needs. She leads the research and content generation activities. Sian is a recognised expert and influencer in RegTech and financial regulation and is featured on the Innovate Finance Women in FinTech Powerlists of 2019 and 2020.
Prior to joining RegTech Associates, she was awarded a PhD from the London School of Economics. Her systematic research explored the challenges faced by banks in dealing with the volume and speed of regulatory change following the 2008 financial crisis. She has more than 20 years of experience in helping large financial institutions such as JP Morgan, UBS and RBS build their regulatory strength in response to regulatory requirements.
