Beyond COVID-19: The 'Next Normal' for Financial Services Regulation

Presented by

Donald McElligott, VP Compliance, Global Relay, and guest speakers from Optima Partners and AMP Capital Investors

About this talk

What is ‘normal’ in our daily lives is ever-changing. And the term ‘new normal’ has become a universal household phenomenon in recent months, as the world comes to terms with the COVID-19 pandemic, and its implications. In financial services, ‘next normal’ is perhaps a more relevant phrase. Post-2008, we saw a period of financial services regulatory transformation, designed to avoid a recurrence of the financial markets collapse and protect the interests of financial services clients. Although challenging, we had settled into a decade of regulatory normality. Little did we know that would change so soon. The ‘next normal’ for financial services regulation will be the world we live in as we adapt to an era of remote working and mobility. Moderator: Donald McElligott, VP Compliance, Global Relay Speakers: Joshua Mika, Partner, Optima Partners and Joe Sommer, Chief Compliance Officer, AMP Capital Investors Join this webinar to learn: • How regulators have responded so far, and how this is likely to evolve as we transition into the next normal • What financial services firms have been doing to ensure continuity of compliance • How regulators are responding to a permanent increase in remote and mobile working • How flexible firms can be in supporting fully-remote working options • Whether the industry is in a position to support 100% offsite remote exams • What cybersecurity safeguards must firms embrace to support secure and compliant remote-working
