The global regulatory reform agenda continues to drive change in the finance function, as well as require finance and risk functions to jointly address increasing and overlapping requirements.
In the US, new and complex regulatory requirements, including the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) and Basel III, and key organizational legal-entity structure changes for FBOs (e.g., IHC) have broad implications for organizations and will require the implementation of significant enhancements across the operating model. Firms must consider current and planned initiatives to develop scalable and sustainable solutions to address evolving Federal Reserve financial reporting requirements.
Our regulatory reporting homepage offers thought leadership on how businesses can better meet their regulatory challenges and insights on how new regulatory changes will impact your business. We offer these insights through roundtables, our 2015 Federal Reserve Regulatory Reporting Survey and our Regulatory Reporting Brief, which offers periodic insights on upcoming regulatory changes and challenges.
