So much emphasis since the Global Financial Crisis has been placed not just on the risks posed by a firm’s business model, but also on how the business is conducted. This module will address what good compliance culture, conduct and governance look like and how Compliance can work with senior management to embed the right systems and controls, governance and conduct risk into business as usual. Using case studies and real-life examples from the tutor’s experiences, students will learn how to challenge their firms’ strategy and how business is conducted.
