The registration process is not live.

Now that laissez-faire regulation is a thing of the past, how will new regulatory pressures affect day-to-day risk management? Some worry that the data-intensive nature of future regulations will create additional bottlenecks in the risk assessment, management and reporting process. However, there are others that claim or it is a return to common sense risk management.

Regulatory reporting has long been seen as an onerous and manually intensive process. The threat of more frequent and more detailed reporting may serve to magnify this burden. While events of the past 12-18 months have stressed the need for a return to common sense risk management, at all levels of the organisation, what does this signify in reality? Does it simply relate back to data availability, capture and delivery?

These themes were discussed during this live and interactive webcast, featuring some of the industry's top thought leaders in financial risk management.

The video is now available to view on Finextra. You can download the webcast replay here.

Brought to you by Finextra and Adobe, this hour and a 15 minute long session looked at how risk managers at financial firms are dealing with the current risk and regulatory environment.

Our panel of experts presented on whether banks should be afraid of increased regulatory pressure or ready for it.

You will hear from:

  • David Clark, Chairman of the Wholesale Markets Brokers' Association (moderator)
  • Matt Clay, Senior Analyst at Financial Insights
  • Barbara Ridpath, Chief Executive at the International Centre for financial Regulation
  • Myles Allison, Senior Director at Financial Industry Regulatory Authority International
  • Alan Banks, Managing Director, Northern Europe at Adobe

Viewers will learn:

  • Does transparency mean better visualisation of risk for senior management, better visibility of risk across operational silos and more effective integration of risk streams across the enterprise?
  • Is transparency driven by the regulator or by the individual institution?
  • Is change in the risk management arena being driven primarily by regulatory mandates or by an internal imperative to manage risk more effectively, efficiently and comprehensively?
  • Does a greater volume of supervisory data really equate to better supervision and lead to better risk practices?
