This year, we participated in a wide range of events covering Artificial Intelligence, Governance, Innovation, and the Future of Financial Regulation! We were privileged, once again, to share our insight and expertise with industry leaders from across the world.
“Correct governance means taking the right responsibility. It is the job of innovators to take a hard look at what they are bringing to the industry and what impact it has on society. Self-assessment is essential to ensure a positive impact on society” - Diana Paredes, CEO of Suade Labs
This was definitely a highlight for Suade as it marked the launch of three new initiatives intending to drive ethical governance of AI adoption and innovation. We made significant contributions to these initiatives, in particular, the Second Edition: Model AI Governance Framework.
The ISAGO complements the Model Framework by allowing organisations to assess the alignment of their AI governance practices with the Model Framework, while providing useful industry examples and practices.
There is also a Compendium of Use Cases which features real-world examples of how organisations have implemented or aligned their AI governance practices with the Model Framework. Together, these initiatives enable any organisation to establish and refine its AI governance practices in concrete and practical ways.
This session explored the development of new technologies designed to prevent the next financial crisis. Diana focused on how Suade has developed a data-driven approach to reporting and regulatory compliance.
Suade Labs was invited by the World Economic Forum to join Technology Pioneers past and present for two days of workshops and panels focused on how we are ‘Serving Humanity through Disruptive Technology’ .
Diana Paredes, our CEO, was delighted to join a panel discussion focusing on the 5 areas in which technology is serving humanity, with her breakout session centred around Secure humanity! The two-day event culminated with the Tech pioneers being invited to the Nasdaq Closing Bell Ceremony for the NYSE!

Suade Recognised as Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum
London RegTech innovator, Suade, is doing ground-breaking work in revolutionising financial regulation.
London, June 21, 2018 – Suade, the London based RegTech start-up has been named as a World Economic Forum 2018 Technology Pioneer, selected among hundreds of candidates. Companies were selected for their potential to “transform society and industry” and “shape the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” Fulvia Montresor of the World Economic Forum said.
The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers community are early-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies and innovations, and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society. The Technology Pioneers are integrated into the World Economic Forum activities with the objective of identifying and addressing future-oriented issues on the global agenda in proactive, innovative, and entrepreneurial ways. Notable examples of past Pioneers include: Google (2001), Twitter (2009), Palantir Technologies (2010), Dropbox (2011) and TransferWise (2015).
Following Suade’s selection as 2018 Technology Pioneer, CEO and Co-founder, Diana Paredes, will be participating in the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of the New Champions held in Tianjin, China, September 18-20. Technology Pioneers will also attend the Annual Meeting in Davos, in January 2019, and continue to contribute to Forum initiatives during the next two years.
“We welcome Suade in this diverse group of technology pioneers,” says Fulvia Montresor, Head of Technology Pioneers at the World Economic Forum. “Suade and its fellow pioneers are front and centre in shaping the ongoing Fourth Industrial Revolution and we believe they will be transforming society and industry in a positive way in the years to come.”
The Technology Pioneers were selected by a selection committee of more than 60 academics, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and corporate executives. The committee based its decisions on criteria including innovation, potential impact and leadership.
Suade, founded by two former bankers in 2014, is one of the first start-ups to be classified as a RegTech company. Suade offers Regulation-as-a-Service to automate regulatory compliance for financial institutions and its mission is to prevent the next financial crisis. The Suade platform is revolutionising the regulatory landscape for the future of digital regulation. With the aim of minimising costs of change involved with each new iteration of regulation, Suade holds the regulation at the core of its work.
