KPMG’s EMA Financial Services Regulatory Insight Centre (RIC) provides pragmatic and insightful intelligence on regulatory developments.
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 affected work plans, with delays, re-prioritisation and new issues to focus on. However, regulators are now progressing existing and new priorities, particularly in the areas of systemic risk, consumer protection, sustainable finance, and technology/digitalisation.
Evolving regulatory agendas
Challenging economic conditions, the need for financial stability and operational resilience, changing consumer demands and behaviours, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns are influencing regulatory agendas around the globe.
Many regulators are prioritising ways to support the transition to a net zero economy 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.
