George Moraitakis PhD
Head of EMEA Regtech
With over 17 years’ experience in FinTech, I have driven the implementation of a wide range of systems across the Investment and Retail banking, providing robust and innovative solutions. From my current position as Product / Development Manager in the RegTech space, I have been leading the delivery of regulatory reporting platforms that enable the timely, accurate and complete submission of reports to regulators across the globe. Using cutting-edge technologies (Machine Learning, Microservices, big data etc.) and practices (scaled Agile, DevOps etc.) I ensure the bank has a comprehensive and innovative suite of applications to remain compliant with a complex set of rules, which result in the generation of 1027 combinations of data points daily, ultimately enabling it to zero down the risks of regulatory fines and reputational impacts. I am currently spearheading the development of a Regulatory Reporting as a Service (RRaaS) platform aiming at offering cloud based solutions for any regulatory reporting stream
