About the centre


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.

  • Risk and Regulation Monthly – August 2014
    Highlights included the ECB’s manual on its Comprehensive Assessment, the PRA’s third consultation on Solvency II transposition, and the FCA’s statement that 2.5 million PPI claims needed to be reassessed.

    In preparation for the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), all ‘significant’ Eurozone banks are taking part in the European Central Bank’s (ECB) comprehensive assessment, with results to be announced in October 2014.
  • 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.
