New challenges and opportunities are quickly reshaping financial services – from AI to FinTech, to open platforms and data analytics, to greater customer centricity and workforce shaping – all of which financial institutions need to address while navigating the evolving risk and regulatory landscape. On the other hand, global concerns about financial and compliance risk have been increasing. In this climate, financial institutions of all kinds and sizes are expected to build robust legal and compliance risk management frameworks and functions that satisfy regulatory demands, contribute to better decision making and enhance performance.

Truly appreciating these challenges faced by our financial and banking clients, our lawyers and compliance experts at KPMG Law Firm work seamlessly with other professionals from KPMG network such as risk management consulting, internal audit, cybersecurity, tax and deal advisory to advise clients in a collaboratively integrated, insight-driven and efficient manner.
