Financial Services Regulation

New regulations, laws and shifting public expectations have pushed governance and compliance up the boardroom agenda. Having effective and robust compliance mechanisms in place has become critical.

PwC’s financial services regulatory practice assists top-tier financial institutions globally in managing and implementing change driven by new regulation and strategic risk management objectives. With more than 25 years of experience, PwC was the first major consulting, law and audit firm to organise a dedicated regulatory practice.

In Switzerland our Regulatory Center of Excellence places more than 200 dedicated specialists from our closely connected Strategy, Legal, Consulting and Audit practices at your disposal. We scan the regulatory horizon for you and actively engage in dialogue with clients, regulators and industry bodies to bring you timely insights about the changing landscape and its impact on your business.

We help our clients understand and implement the changes required by regulation, making sure they have the means to deliver fair outcomes for their customers. Working across the regulatory lifecycle from impact assessment, design, implementation and testing as well as reviewing existing frameworks, we help deliver tailored solutions to enable our clients to meet and exceed regulatory requirements.

With PwC, you will be supported by a team of former industry executives, top lawyers, former senior regulators and experienced industry consultants. Our market knowledge is enhanced by our leading position as advisor and auditor to the top global and Swiss banks, asset managers and insurers.
