Helping financial services firms meet regulatory requirements and maximise efficiency

Since 2009, banks worldwide have paid $300bn in penalties. Only 28% of financial services firms believe their workers are ready for new challenges ahead.

In an increasingly regulated environment, financial services firms are focusing on digital transformation and disruption from fintech competitors while responding to the global pandemic. Firms must face these challenges while meeting greater demand for trust and transparency.

In high-stakes sectors like financial services, compliance is no longer a support function. It is essential to success. Meeting the challenges ahead will mean equipping employees with the right skills.

Assessing employees on a regular basis can help embed a culture of compliance across the business.

Tests and exams help ensure employees are learning and retaining critical new competencies.
