In today's global marketplace, banking organizations have greatly expanded the scope and complexity of their activities and face an ever-changing and increasingly complex regulatory environment. Furthermore, due to the consumer credit crisis, several high profile compliance breakdowns, and increased emphasis on consumer protection, the federal and state regulatory agencies, investors, legislators and the general public are focused on institutions' customer practices and regulatory compliance performance like never before. Moreover, a compliance failure can result in litigation, financial penalties, regulatory constraints and reputational damage that can strategically affect an organization.
PwC's bank regulatory compliance team is well qualified to assist banking companies in addressing these challenges and staying abreast of changing regulatory requirements, expectations and industry practices. We are the leader in providing regulatory compliance services to the US and global banking industry. Our highly qualified and experienced professionals provide a full range of regulatory compliance risk management services. We do not sell generic products or "one-size fits all" solutions. Instead, we offer practical regulatory compliance advice and solutions that are tailored to each client's individual business needs.
