KPMG’s EMA Financial Services Regulatory Insight Centre provides insights into the implications of risk and regulatory change.
Read our series of insights about the implications of the shift from LIBOR to RFR.
Regulation continues to be a key driver of the strategic agenda for financial services firms. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted work plans, with delays, re-prioritisation and new issues. However, regulators are now progressing existing and new priorities, particularly in the areas of systemic risk, consumer protection, sustainable finance and technology/digitalisation.
Regulation in the new reality
Challenging economic conditions, the need for financial stability and operational resilience, changing consumer demands and behaviours, and environmental and social concerns are influencing regulatory agendas around the globe.
Regulators are prioritising a sustainable recovery and the adjustment to an increasingly digital world whilst also focusing on the review and development of regulatory frameworks, in response to challenges such as Brexit, capital markets and banking union and the evolution of cryptocurrencies.
