Rethinking regulatory change

As the financial services industry continues to evolve, so too does the regulatory framework that seeks to bring confidence to consumers and capital markets.

In this rapidly changing environment, the industry is focusing its attention on the most important regulatory issues on the horizon, including their implementation and enforcement phases.

Regulators, clients and communities are asking the financial services industry to do more. Organisations need to not only understand how the regulatory agenda will affect their business but also use it to their advantage, to meet these growing expectations. Prioritising the most pressing regulatory issues is essential to both operating and thriving in an era of increasing enforcement action.
