OVERVIEW ON COMPLIANCE CHALLENGES • FATCA is what seems to be causing the banks the biggest challenge • Regulators in Asia are getting a lot tougher about approving wealth management products and looking at the miss-selling procedures in place • Singapore’s brought in a new code of conduct for private bankers and Hong Kong there are much tougher rules now for structured products • In the less developed financial centres, there is an issue of regulatory uncertainty and barriers for foreign banks. • FCPA and UK Bribery Act • Dodd Frank still a work in progress and still haven’t finalized drafting how the rules will reach overseas. However, those rules and the other new rules on derivative trading coming in across Europe and Asia mean that banks will have a lot of operational work to do to connect all their trading systems up to central clearing houses and trade repositories.

TO DO MORE WITH LESSCOMPLIANCE AS ACOMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE 15
So what are the three things you should do? • People and expertise • Culture is probably the most important aspect of implementing GRC and the board and CEO needs to set the tone at the top. • The right expertise, and providing the right training is critical. One of the most effective ways of improving governance and compliance quickly is training employees in the standards expected of them by the company – • Companies have learned that their employees can be the largest source of risk, they also learn that changing employee behaviour is the best way of managing risk and can be your first line of defence. 16
So what are the three things you should do? • Insist on “Better Information not More Information” Our mission at Thomson Reuters is to provide better information. Of those 15,000 regulatory updates that Thomson Reuters track from 300 regulators around the world every year (an average of 60 updates) a day, which is the one that if missed could put your business at risk? • Standardise processes and better controls around your risks, prioritising where the largest risks are and placing standard controls and checks in place – driving growth whilst ensuring standards are maintained is the primary goal of any GRC workflow and control tool 17
