7th Annual Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence

Asia-Pacific's leading regulatory awards programme


Now in its seventh year, our awards programme annually celebrates the ongoing efforts and excellence of financial institutions, market infrastructures, technology firms, service providers, advisory firms, and industry bodies across Asia Pacific. We recognise their dedication to managing risks while upholding the resilience and integrity of Asia’s financial system and markets amidst an evolving and increasingly complex regulatory landscape.

Guided by a distinguished panel of industry veterans who serve as judges, our Awards programme also acknowledges individual project implementations and industry initiatives that have significantly influenced the regulatory landscape in Asia-Pacific throughout the year.

Consistent with previous years, the research-driven process ensures that the categories and themes remain timely, relevant, and aligned with today’s regulatory landscape. This includes an increasing focus on rapidly growing areas such as Fraud and Financial Crime, ESG, and digital assets. Additionally, we have consolidated advisory services for each category to facilitate more meaningful comparisons.

Our awards judges will meticulously evaluate, challenge, and score the submissions in each category, ensuring a robust and equitable process for all entrants. Thanks to these industry experts, our Awards programme continues to be recognised as the most rigorous and comprehensive focused on the Asia-Pacific risk, regulatory, and compliance community.

Submissions for the Regulation Asia awards are now open.

2024 Judges

Regulation Asia prides itself on conducting a thorough awards review process. To complement the work of our editorial and research teams, we have selected a number of senior industry participants to serve on a judging panel to help during the review process. Our selection takes into account their involvement in the regulatory compliance domain, along with their exposure to the technology and services firms, in most cases having first hand experience from a practitioner’s perspective.

Submission Process

Entrants are allowed to apply for multiple categories, in separate submissions. Our evaluation team reserves the right to assess the submissions for their suitability in each category, and decide to have them judged in a different or, in some cases, multiple categories. Not all awards categories will have a winner declared.

Depending on the number and diversity of submissions received, some categories may be split off into subcategories and evaluated separately based on the specific regulatory requirements being addressed, and the types of firms providing solutions.

To encourage submissions, we do not ask for exhaustive detail of your projects at the entry stage, but we may later request additional information, seek responses to questions from judges, or request interviews with entrants. 

All submissions will need to be sent in via the online form, which also supports file uploads to allows entrants to supply any documentation in support of their submissions.
