How will the latest legislation and regulations affect my organisation? What risks are involved? What does it mean for my reputation and my shareholders? Trust is fundamental to the financial services sector. Since the credit crisis, trust in financial services is low and now, more than ever before, society is calling for stricter requirements for financial services providers. This is reflected in the extensive and constantly changing legislation and regulations, closer monitoring by the government, more influence from shareholders and a stronger focus on the interests of customers. Banks, insurers, investment funds, asset managers and pension and real estate funds want control over their risks and processes.
The rapidly changing requests and demands from consumers and the unpredictable interest rates also keep the financial sector on its toes. Agility is crucial in a market screaming for new, more flexible insurance options, mortgage options, capital accumulation and payment services. Standing by and watching is not an option if you want to continue to be part of the financial services industry, but innovation and thinking ahead definitely are.
