Banking

What’s happening?

The banking industry is faster-moving and more volatile than ever before

  • clients have higher standards and expectations
  • the industry is shaped by a constantly changing operating environment and a high degree of regulation at both the national and international level
  • banks must meet international best practice
  • investor protection and confidence in the local banks and systems, as well as the industry’s reputation, are ever more reliant upon the maintenance of these high standards

Recent disruptions in the financial markets, together with the move to Basel II have further heightened the importance of effective risk management in delivering stable returns and supporting robust governance and compliance processes.
