  • Understand the global, regional and local regulatory agendas
  • Identify what’s next and beyond and prioritize issues
  • Improve risk and compliance management frameworks, and the allocation of resources

Navigating regulatory trends for 2022 and beyond

The Global Regulatory Outlook 2022 gives firms a sense of the direction of regulatory travel in seven areas that we believe will shape regulation and policy. It also includes actions for firms as they grapple with the dual responsibility of responding to the impact of COVID-19 crisis while addressing new and existing policies at the frontiers of technology, environmental, social and governance (ESG) measures and other factors.

Areas that will shape regulation and policy:
  • Expansion of regulatory priorities beyond financial stability to include the social agenda
  • The impact of climate risks on financial stability and the regulatory response
  • The changing regulatory perimeter to address crypto and big tech
  • New challenges arising from the digitalization of financial services
  • Collaboration on ecosystem infrastructure and a prudential approach
  • Geopolitical risks and regulatory fragmentation
  • An urgent need for greater organizational agility
