As regulatory regimes become ever more complex and international, managing cross-border compliance and risk is increasingly important to financial institutions. Failure to do so is likely to result in reputational damage and severe penalties for both institutions and individuals.
We guide our clients through the challenges of compliance – current and future, strategic and operational – across all major geographies and provide world class insights on emerging regulatory trends, expectations and requirements.
Many in our integrated financial services regulatory team members have worked in senior in-house roles within both regulators and global financial institutions, so we understand the challenges you face managing regulatory risk within and across jurisdictions, and the importance of finding practicable solutions.
Through our work with many of the leading financial firms, we know what market best practice is and maintain up to date intelligence on regulatory developments through our close contact with regulators and our proactive involvement in the framing of regulatory policy and new rules.
Our integrated financial services regulatory team spans over 25 countries across Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
