Waters Technology Regulation Special Report
While U.S. and E.U. regulatory initiatives remain works in progress, it is becoming clear that the impacts on data management systems may be significant for many market participants. The question is how to respond at this point. For example, many U.S. financial institutions are concerned about the coming impact of Dodd-Frank. They wonder whether the best approach is to modify data gathering and processing systems just enough to get by or to upgrade more significantly.
Even with regulatory initiatives that are still unfinished, market participants are advised to improve upon their market data capture and reporting. Institutions need to better understand risk concentrations and total exposure, and should monitor regulatory demands and data requirements, anticipating changes, rather than resorting to IT overkill or last-minute fixes.
Robert Walley, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, shares his insight in Waters Regulation Special Report issue in feature titled “Rising to the IT Challenges of Financial Services Regulation”.
