Topic Background:

Compliance professionals currently face a myriad of overlapping and confusing regulations and regulators. In the aftermath of the financial crisis, new regulations and increased aggressiveness on the part of regulators have led to growing demands placed on financial firms. The volume and pace of regulatory change causes new and diverse pressures on compliance functions. Over the years, the financial regulatory system has been modified to address various sources of potential financial instability and attempt to provide regulation and a structure for areas where there are purported regulatory gaps. With each new crisis, there are efforts made to address perceived weaknesses in the regulatory system. The result is a complex regulatory system in which federal agencies have overlapping jurisdictions. These structures have resulted in tremendous confusion on the part of compliance professionals who have to make decisions to allocate often scarce resources to compliance efforts necessitated by the overlapping regulatory schemes.
