Regulatory Advisory Services

Regulatory Advisory Services

The strategic and operational challenges facing financial institutions have never been greater.

The challenges facing financial institutions have never been greater.

The strategic and operational challenges facing financial institutions have never been greater with the regulatory reform agenda being perhaps the single most pervasive driver of change.

Failure to comply with regulatory requirements can result in damaged reputations and even in penalties and fines being imposed on institutions.


Basel 4 Revisited

In 2013, KPMG predicted the emergence of Basel 4 even before Basel 3 had been fully implemented. This report looks back on where we were right, and what may lie ahead for banks.


Transforming the Regulatory Agenda

Transforming the Regulatory Agenda: an opportunity for financial services is the first in a series of reports on the importance of implementing a change management framework that centralises and synthesises current and future regulatory demands.


How KPMG can help

KPMG provides regulatory advisory services across the financial services spectrum, offering strong technical advice along with practical business knowledge.

Many leading financial service organisations turn to KPMG’s regulatory professionals to enhance their value and abilities in key areas such as:

  • Supporting institutions’ assessments of the impact of new regulatory requirements and preparations for implementation 
  • Steering institutions through the Central Bank of Ireland’s authorisation process and assisting in the setup of compliance frameworks and, where appropriate, tailoring group wide policies and procedures to the local environment, and harmonising multi-country operations into a single compliance approach 
  • Providing an independent assessment of institutions’ capital adequacy/solvency position and Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process 
  • Developing and assessing reporting frameworks for the submission of statistical and prudential regulatory returns to the Central Bank of Ireland 
  • Developing and assessing risk based anti-money laundering arrangements and controls 
  • Assessing the effectiveness of existing compliance frameworks and benchmarking compliance arrangements against established industry best practice 
  • Performing regulatory due diligence investigations, in conjunction with transaction services and tax colleagues, for acquisitions, disposals, and management buy-outs 
  • Providing compliance training to ensure institutions are aware of existing and new regulatory requirements

Our approach

KPMG has a dedicated team of experienced regulatory professionals who can bring a multi-disciplinary approach to delivering an integrated, business-focused strategy for managing regulatory change.
