Corporate governance has proven to be a critical factor for any organisation, and even more so for financial institutions, affecting their sustainability, growth and overall future.
Financial regulation is a form of regulation or supervision, which subjects financial institutions to certain requirements, restrictions and guidelines, aiming to maintain the integrity of the financial system.
The environment of supervising banks, investment firms and insurance companies as well as directly correlated professionals like lawyers, accountants and auditors has never been tougher. All those professions and markets must be co-ordinated by regulators to avoid market distortions and potential “chain reaction” deriving from a failure to handle them and treat them fairly and with professionalism.
In addition, the Compliance function is crucial for organisations and especially so for Financial Services.
Given the complex regulatory framework, being compliant in the Financial Services sector is a great challenge that requires relevant expertise and, a well-documented plan of action and a disciplined implementation guide are prepared and followed.
This Certificate course will examine specific areas through four modules:
