As we reach the end of another challenging year in Financial Services and related industries, our minds can be excused for wandering into what next year might bring in the world of risk management, both in terms of development priorities and areas of focus within the institutions we support and the markets in which they operate.

There are hundreds of sources of useful insights to help us with this thinking but one all-encompassing publication that addresses the key strategic priorities through the lens of regulation is the Deloitte Financial Markets Regulatory Outlook 2019. If you haven’t had a look already, I suggest adding it to your Christmas reading list – to be consumed with some mulled wine and a mince pie!

As usual, David Strachan and his team in Deloitte’s Centre for Regulatory Strategy have done a great job of summarising the key themes that shape regulatory thinking and developments, as well as highlighting some questions that Risk teams should be asking themselves.
