How to test your firm's Compliance Program based on what the Regulators are Focusing on

The financial regulators publish a listing of their exam initiatives for the upcoming year. Financial advisers use this listing to anticipate what thinking the regulators bring into a financial year, which will have a major bearing on the financial industry. This listing offers financial advisers an idea of what to expect during a particular financial year.

For instance, taking off from the backdrop of the financial crisis of 2007 to 2009; the financial regulatory priorities listed out in a study carried out by Harvard included the following:

o  Increased capital regulation

o  Improved stress testing and capital planning

o  Regulation of the liquidity requirements

o  The need for learning the tools for regulatory migration across financial institutions

o  The authority the regulatory agencies have in regulating large financial institutions

These constitute the broad items of financial regulatory priorities. Financial advisers may use these financial regulatory priorities issued at a particular point of time to make assessments and calculations that help them arrive at decisions which they pass on to investors. However, different priorities emerge from time to time, simply because the financial situation is fluid and ever evolving.

Based on evolving priorities and situations

Financial advisers may make valuations and offer honest advice to investors about the financial markets, but these can be subject to flux. In the event of these changing goals and situations; it is not possible to arrive at black and white conclusions about the priorities.

Financial professionals and those who take their advice need to be fully alert to the happenings in the financial landscape if they have to arrive at the right decisions. How do they do that? What is the basis on which the exam initiatives need to be understood in order to facilitate sensible decision-making about finance?

Learning about how to understand exam initiatives

This is what a webinar from Compliance4All, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will be offering at a webinar. This webinar will have Lisa Marsden, IACCP, who is the President and Founder of Coulter Strategic Services. Coulter Strategic Services, which provides Financial Advisors and compliance consulting firms with compliance and project management services, as the speaker.

Please visit day to day tasks of financial compliance to enroll for this webinar and gain clarity in understanding the details set out in the regulatory exam initiatives.

Understanding how the priorities suit participants’ organizations

The speaker will explain what each financial industry participant needs to know about this year’s regulatory initiatives. She will highlight the importance of learning from priorities that are involved in the day to day tasks of financial compliance.

She will show how participants can learn the ways of reviewing the regulator’s annual priorities list and incorporating the priorities that relate to their own firm into their compliance program. The ways by which to test the specific areas and how to remediate any issues found, will be explained. Beyond the priorities, Lisa will also show how to find out what to expect from exams and how to test the suitability of the participants’ compliance program based on what the regulators are focusing on.

Lisa will cover the following areas at this webinar:

o  Learn how to gain access to the financial regulators priorities

o  Understand how to apply those priorities to your firm

o  Incorporate the priorities into your annual review

o  Distinguish which priorities need to become part of the Compliance Manual/Code of Ethics

o  Determine what your firm’s financial regulatory priorities should be

o  Other sources for annual priorities.
