About the centre

Overview

Regulation continues to pose a major challenge for the financial services industry and its regulators. We are facing a period of unprecedented regulatory change, in terms of the number of new initiatives, their complexity and the interplay between different regulations. Senior management can no longer afford to treat regulation primarily as a matter of compliance: some regulatory developments raise fundamental questions about the economics of the business that go to the heart of the organisation’s strategy.

The EMEA Centre for Regulatory Strategy monitors regulatory developments and provides an expert, objective perspective on opportunities and challenges for clients. It utilises Deloitte’s Risk and Regulation, Strategy Consulting and other relevant areas of expertise to understand, influence and advise on regulatory change, with a particular focus on the strategic business model and aggregate impacts.

Latest commentary and thought leadership

  • Risk and Regulation Monthly – July 2014
    Ahead of the expected summer lull, regulators rushed to publish a large number of papers, most notably on the UK Senior Management and Certification regimes, recovery and resolution, financial benchmarks and EU guidelines on the supervisory review and evaluation process (SREP).
  • Transition to the Senior Managers and Certification Regimes
    This paper from Deloitte’s EMEA Centre for Regulatory Strategy addresses the key points in the FCA/PRA consultation paper and sets-out our expectations of what this will mean for firms and individuals in practice, with a particular focus on the challenges and what firms should be doing to prepare.
  • Risk and Regulation Monthly – June 2014
    Following the surge in legislation ahead of the European elections, June saw a number of final texts published, including the bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (RRD) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Regulation (MiFID II/MiFIR). In the UK, house prices and mortgages were in focus, with the Financial Policy Committee given new macroprudential powers.
  • Risk and Regulation Monthly - May 2014
    Key regulatory developments in May included Sir Richard Lambert’s recommendation to create the Banking Standards Review Council; ESMA’s publication of a first set of Level 2 measures for MiFID II; and the results of the FCA’s thematic reviews on clarity of fund charges and conflicts of interest in insurance intermediaries, and its policy on dealing commission for fund managers
