Compliance management is at the heart of any bank regardless of their size. There is a clear distinction in how compliance management is carried out in small and larger banks. Enterprises can leverage millions of dollars on their compliance efficiency whereas, smaller banks remained constrained with their budget and resources.

Why assuring effective compliance is unavoidable

1. The risk of regulatory fines/penalties

Failing to regulatory compliance can cause organizations to pay not just thousands but millions of dollars in fines. For instance, Deloitte (Germany) was fined for EUR 175,000 recently, because of their inefficient regulatory compliance.

2. Termination/dissolution of business

Major violation of regulatory compliance can not only cause businesses to bear heavy fines but also the severity of the impact can become the reason for their closure. The uncertain nature of the business environment requires banks and financial institutions to vigilantly monitor and adhere to laws and controls set forward by the regulatory bodies.

3. The hierarchical glitches

Effective regulatory compliance requires total commitment from the management. If the top hierarchy carries ambiguities in compliance requirements then, it will lead to catastrophic results in compliance assurance.

4. Deficiency of technical/technology unawareness

Nowadays the compliance management system is heavily dependent upon the right technology. A bank lacking on its technical updates would increase the risk of being left behind. We recently published “GRC Technology and Compliance Solutions in the Digital Age” to better cover the risk and its possible mitigation strategies, we highly recommend you to explore the key initiatives in this regards.
