Essential strategies for regulatory compliance
In the post global financial crisis era, regulators are working on revolutionary regulatory reforms that will increase expectations on and responsibilities of financial institutions in managing their compliance risk. Regulatory compliance is one of the governance duties held by the board and senior management. With good governance and culture, sound compliance infrastructure and dynamic framework, ability to stay abreast of all cross-border and local regulatory developments, as well as competent compliance personnel, financial institutions will be able to ride the waves of change, emerge stronger, and operate businesses with integrity.
