Financial services firms are facing a large-scale regulatory reform agenda that creates significant risk of non-compliance and reputational risk for their organisation.
With greater scrutiny from international and local regulators, firms have to ensure that they have put in place a robust and timely control and processing framework supported by effective governance to de-risk their external and internal commitments.
