About Us


Regulation Asia launched in November 2013. The audience and subscription base has grown to include key regulatory bodies, financial services firms and service providers.

Traditionally regulation has been the talk of the back-office but since the recent financial crisis, more executives are keeping a watchful eye on the changes being made across the globe.

Asia is playing catch up. With multiple jurisdictions having their own mandates to preserve order in the financial markets, understanding the various nuances is time-consuming and complex.

Regulation Asia seeks to inform and analyse how financial regulations are affecting the financial service industry in Asia. Through our features, interviews, research as well as events, conferences and seminars, we play a key role in the regulatory agenda.
