UK Regulatory and Public Policy
With economic, political and social change comes uncertainty, and uncertainty creates risk and disruption. At EY – as with other business leaders – we are not only witnessing these circumstances, we are managing and mitigating the consequences.
Our UK Regulatory and Public Policy team does just this – we manage emerging regulatory and policy risks and identify opportunities. And in this period of immense change, our role has never been more important.
By leveraging the wealth of experience at our fingertips from across EY, we also contribute to debate on issues high on the agenda of Government, regulators, investors and our clients – such as corporate governance, culture and long-term value.
