The Digital Regulator

How The FCA Is Using Data And Tech To Transform Financial Services Regulation


As the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) looks towards transforming the way they regulate financial services, Steve Green will be talking about how they are working to achieve this. The talk will focus upon 3 streams of activity that are each critical for success;

  1. The delivery of flexible technology and data capabilities to underpin the journey.
  2. How to build an organisation’s ability to challenge and change how work is done today, via a combination of the right people, skills and culture.
  3. How to ensure value is delivered quickly and where it matters most, and then how to extend that value across internal and external stakeholders.


Steve Green is Head of Central Data Services at the FCA. His department looks after all data management and collection activities for the FCA, as well as running a number of central data advisory, analysis and insight functions. Steve is also the Accountable Executive in charge of the FCA’s Data Strategy implementation, transforming the way the FCA exploits its’ data and covering the replacement of all key data platforms. Prior to joining the FCA, Steve worked on implementing large scale technology driven change across a variety of businesses.
