The aftermath of the financial crisis sparked significant changes in the approach taken toward financial services regulation around the world. Regulators' attention and resources are now centered on the behavior of firms and how they conduct their business.
Although managing and mitigating conduct risk has become one of the highest priorities for regulators worldwide, a universally agreed definition of conduct risk does not yet, exist. Compliance officers, risk and other senior managers have to establish what risk means for their organization and to put in place systems and controls to manage the risks they have identified.
To support the financial services industry in its management of conduct risk, and enable firms to benchmark their own practices against global peers, Thomson Reuters has undertaken its first survey dedicated to finding out how the industry is defining and dealing with conduct risk. The responses received represent organizations from across the financial services sector, including banks, insurers and fund managers.
