Cross-border business activities are an important pillar of the financial industry ever since, bearing considerable legal- and reputational risks. Hence, financial service providers with international client bases are confronted with a multitude of country-specific regulations.

Cross-border financial services are subject to extensive controls in an increasingly tightened regulatory environment. Strict compliance with respective local provisions is a central topic. This is where KPMG can support you.
