Audit & Compliance

The current regulatory environment means that banks and financial institutions face intense and increasing pressure and scrutiny. Leaders and strategic specialists in progressive compliance and internal audit roles must foster collaboration between functions, and develop and manage relationships and channels of communication with a highly complex set of stakeholders, both external and internal.
