Ten Key Regulatory Challenges Facing the Financial Services Industry

Ten Key Regulatory Challenges

With 2016 around the corner, KPMG has predicted ten key new and ongoing regulatory themes that we expect will demand the attention of financial services organizations in the coming year. The complexity of the regulatory environment and regulators’ continued focus on governance and accountability, are likely to keep these issues “front and center” as the U.S. moves into a major election cycle.
