Compliance should be part of a firm’s strategic thinking. The regulators will play an increasingly important role in influencing financial institutions’ strategy. Compliance is no longer just about today – it is now vital to think about how both prudential and conduct issues fit into the firm’s strategy and how compliance risks can be managed going forward into 2018 and beyond.
