Risk and Compliance Are Transforming the Enterprise

The operation and technology groups in banks are under pressure: operating model pressure, regulatory compliance pressure, and capital pressure. These pressures are pushing banks to radically rethink their operations from how they trade, manage risk, accumulate positions, manage assets and liabilities, deploy capital, control and report information to regulators. To accomplish this organizations need to work across siloed communities. Global business lines need to work differently with risk, finance, and treasury.  The objective is to enable executives and regulators with greater insight into their front-to-back risk, compliance and controls including risk, cost, and balance sheet reporting. No longer can these groups work independently and expect to both stay off the front page and remain solvent. This roundtable discussion will bring together traders, enterprise risk and compliance, and finance and treasury professionals to have a moderated discussion to better understand the challenges of running a global investment bank in the age of oversight, and how the most sophisticated firms are rethinking how they operate.
