Global Compliance Practices


Global Compliance & Regulatory Management plays a critical role in the successful execution of the firm’s compliance mission.  The Compliance function ensures the development and maintenance of a strong compliance culture by developing and maintaining program infrastructure that identifies, measures and monitors compliance with applicable laws, regulations and rules that govern our business globally. Compliance teams work closely with business, legal, risk, and audit functions to provide expertise on regulatory compliance matters, assess and measure compliance and related risks, and monitor and test the adequacy of the firm’s compliance control environment.

Compliance Risk Assessment and Reporting is one of the key Program components by which overall compliance risks are identified, analyzed and measured through a consistent global approach so as to:
