About R2A

The RegTech for Regulators Accelerator (R2A) partnered with leading financial sector authorities to pioneer SupTech applications for financial sector regulation, supervision, and policy analysis. With support from R2A, financial authorities could access new datasets and enhance their intelligence to establish a body of knowledge and evidence that drives financial inclusion and supports financial stability, integrity, and consumer protection.

Through R2A, partner financial authorities re-imagined how they collect and manage data, and harness technology to improve the speed, quality, and comprehensiveness of information in support of targeted, risk-based decision-making. R2A also engaged closely with technology innovators to create structured opportunities for them to propose solutions and collaborate with financial authorities in the design and testing of promising ideas.

Launched in October 2016, the R2A team partnered with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), the Mexican Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV) and the Central Bank of Nigeria to develop and test next-generation SupTech solutions. The initiative’s objective was to contribute to the creation of a global SupTech marketplace where robust solutions are available and demonstrated for key use cases.
