Regulatory Change

The financial services industry has gone through some significant change during the last number of years. The collapse of the markets in 2009 has resulted in a global focus on ensuring the markets remain stable and predictable and that the conduct of organisations within the industry act in a responsible and reliable manner. In order to implement this regime, regulators across the globe have instigated an unprecedented program of regulation. 

The volume, breadth and complexity of these new regulations has forced organisations to reassess their approach to dealing with Regulatory Change. Many of our clients have set up brand new Regulatory Change functions as a mechanism to cope with the overhead and as a means to provide oversight across the plethora of change instigated by these regulations.
 
DBFS are able to assist our clients in three key areas of the Regulatory Landscape:

1. What are the regulations?
Simply put, interpreting the rules, principles and guidelines of each regulation. Who is impacted and how? What are the timelines and what is the process for compliance?

2. How do the regulations impact my organisation?
DBFS can offer practical guidance and help assess how any specific regulation will impact your organisation. This includes specific mitigations and actions that your organisation will need to undertake in order to seek compliance. 

3. How can I maintain operational efficiency through all this change?
None of the regulations have been written to offer operational efficiency. So how do organisations navigate their way through the volume of change and still deliver positive value? DBFS are able to help look at your organisation’s regulatory change program and assist organisations in delivering compliance whilst optimising value throughout the business. Adopting a single program of regulatory change offers opportunities for organisations to look at longer term strategic implications, seek competitive advantage and save costs in adopting regulation going forward.
