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.

  • OTC Derivatives – The new cost of trading
    Over-the-counter (OTC) derivative markets have been subject to significant change as global regulatory commitments become increasingly a reality. This paper explores how much more expensive cleared and non-cleared OTC derivative transactions will become as a result of the reform package in the EU, how the structure of OTC derivative markets is set to change and what strategic challenges arise for firms.
  • FCA Risk Outlook and Business Plan 2014-15 - What firms can expect from the FCA over the coming year
    On 31 March, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) published its Risk Outlook and Business Plan for 2014-15. Together, these two documents are a must-read for firms as they set out the FCA’s proposed action for the year ahead. This briefing note focuses on the forward-looking areas of focus in the Risk Outlook and the thematic reviews and market studies highlighted by the FCA in the Business Plan.
  • Risk and Regulation Monthly – February 2014
    Among the February highlights were the Framework Regulation on the functioning of the Single Supervisory Mechanism, the PRA’s approach to supervising foreign banks operating in the UK, final rules from the FCA on consumer credit, and political agreement on UCITS V.
  • The Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) | The big data issue
    Investment in data and analytics should be a priority for banking supervision in the context of the SSM and could be the differentiating factor that determines whether or not the SSM lives up to the aspirations that have been set for it. This paper offers analysis of the challenges banks and supervisors share and puts forward ideas on what resolving these challenges might look like.
