As the number of laws and regulations increase, the cost and complexity for compliance has grown and will carry on for the foreseeable future as a second wave of regulatory activity takes place. Consequently, banks across the globe are increasing their search for effective enterprise risk management initiatives and solutions, in order to transform these regulatory burdens into competitive advantages. 'The Future of Regulatory Compliance' is a new management report that provides in-depth analysis of the pending regulations –including Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) and Regulation National Market System (Reg NMS) - and the impact they will have on financial services institutions (FSIs) in Europe and the US. It reveals technology issues FSIs need to overcome and demonstrates how IT providers can help them through developing best practices and technology solutions to meet the requirements of new laws and regulations. This report also investigates ‘compliance fatigue’ and examines the continuing importance of past regulations –such as SOX – in IT budgetary considerations. Gain invaluable knowledge, plan ahead and create a competitive advantage, using the detailed analysis and recommendations in this new report.
