As regulations become more complex along with the disruption of Fintech, the urgency for effective Regtech grows and this is reflected in the massive interest in the field over the past year. Also a tech solution provider in the financial market, SEI (NASDAQ: SEIC) is taking a strong role in the fast growing sector to help financial firms' best address the increasingly complicated regulatory landscape. SEI’s Codify incubator has brought in three leading Regtech startups for its launch.

With their position in the blockchain market, Coinfirm is bringing with them a technology set to be one of the more important technological innovations for Regtech and the financial system as a whole where it could cut infrastructure and compliance costs for financial companies by 50% according to some estimates. Coinfirm, already a recognized influencer in the blockchain and regtech spaces has taken a particular leap towards redefining compliance and regulatory processes.

Coinfirm and SEI are working together to bring such types of benefits of blockchain for their clients and partners and across the entire industry.

SEI launched Codify to support promising early-stage businesses that are developing tech solutions to address the world’s growing and demanding regulatory requirements,” stated Ahsan Mallick, general counsel at SEI UK and Executive Sponsor of Codify.
Pawel Kuskowski has expressed his positivity for SEI’s approach towards blockchain and Regtech with Codify.
“We’ve received great support from SEI and have been really impressed by their open and progressive approach towards bringing the benefits of blockchain technology to the wider financial market.
