Financial regulation

Navigating through the upheaval

The G20/Financial Stability Board-led overhaul of global financial services (FS) regulation is radically reshaping the industry, starting with the largest and most internationally active groups.

The main challenges today relate to just how much change is coming at the same time and the complex competitive/co-operative drive to address issues internationally. And these pressures apply to insurers and asset managers as well as banks.

Implementation demands are set to dominate investment decisions for many years to come – billions are at stake. Businesses face a fundamental dilemma of how to generate sufficient returns when both capital demands and the cost of compliance are going up. Beyond this, the new regulatory agenda has huge implications for culture, structure and organisation. Making confident decisions about how best to comply and compete in this new landscape is critical.
