Both retail and investment banks are faced with an ever wider regulatory framework at both a national and international level.
Compliance requirements range from conduct of business rules around marketing and passporting financial products to overarching prudential requirements for capital, liquidity and recovery and resolution planning.
Our team advises the world’s leading banks on a very wide range of regulations. We have invested in building a large global team that provides expert advice and interacts with regulators on a day-to-day basis.
Areas we advise and assist clients on include:
- Authorisation applications - across a wide range of banking activities and in multiple different jurisdictions.
- Structural and regulatory reform - implementing compliance programmes and helping with business re-design processes.
- Consumer finance and retail - designing new retail products and advising on conduct of business rules for marketing and sales.
