It is a portmanteau of the words “regulatory” and “technology.” In the financial space, it’s often used to refer to technologies that aid in anti-money laundering (AML), Know Your Customer (KYC), and customer due diligence (CDD) compliance, but it may take on a different meaning in other industries that are subject to their own regulations.
