Compliance and Competitiveness is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by Sybase.
The report’s quantitative findings are based primarily on an online survey of 160 senior financial services executives, conducted in February 2011. The survey sample was drawn from Western Europe. A wide range of financial services activities is represented in the sample, including investment management, investment banking, commercial, corporate and retail banking, wholesale capital markets operations and hedge funds. More than half (51%) of the companies in the sample have global assets of US$75bn or more. Nearly half (48%) of respondents are C-level executives or board members. To supplement the quantitative survey results, we conducted in-depth interviews with financial services executives and other experts in financial regulation and compliance. The participants in the in-depth interview programme are listed in an appendix to this report. We would like to thank all interview participants and respondents for their time and insights. The findings and views expressed in the report do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsor. Rob Mitchell is the author of the report, and Aviva Freudmann is the editor.
