AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 26, 2019 – Eventus Systems, Inc., a leading global trade surveillance and market risk platform provider, was just named by specialist research firm RegTech Analyst to the global RegTech 100 List for 2020.  This is the second consecutive year the company made the selective list of the world’s most innovative solution providers addressing the challenges and opportunities presented by regulatory issues within financial services. 

One of 19 U.S.  regtech companies honored


Eventus was one of only 19 U.S. companies to make the 2020 list and among just 47 companies globally to earn the recognition two years in a row. Featuring regulatory technology (RegTech) companies “transforming compliance, risk management and cybersecurity,” this year’s list highlights firms from 25 countries.  

More than 1,000 companies globally were considered for the honor, which aims to help senior management and compliance professionals evaluate which solutions have the most market potential to succeed and have a lasting impact on the industry, according to RegTech Analyst.  A panel of analysts and industry experts selected the winners.

Mariyan Dimitrov, Head of Research for RegTech Analyst, said: “Eventus Systems demonstrated once again its innovative use of technology – in the form of the firm’s Validus platform – to help clients solve significant industry compliance challenges while simultaneously generating major efficiencies.  We are pleased to recognize the company as one of the world’s 100 most innovative RegTech providers that every financial institution needs to know as they develop their mission-critical RegTech and digital transformation strategies.”

Eventus CEO Travis Schwab said: “It’s a great honor for Eventus to appear once again on the list of the leading 100 companies globally in the sector.  We have worked diligently to ensure we’re constantly enhancing our Validus platform to meet the real-world and ever-evolving challenges our clients face.
