We are delighted to host our 6th annual Compliance in Asian Wealth Management Forum 2018 in Singapore.

This forum provides an opportunity for open discussion of the current challenges for professionals in the Compliance in Asian Wealth Management industry.

There is ever increasing regulatory scrutiny from both domestic and international Regulators which makes the challenge for Compliance professionals greater with every year that passes by. The costs of compliance increase every year, and the way compliance is being implemented in many organisations is changing quickly with RegTech, and FinTech solutions becoming common discussions for initiatives at wealth and asset management firms. It is also becoming a greater challenge to recruit and retain staff who have the appropriate skill set as we see a move towards digitization of human capital.

Compliance with home country regulations is being overtaken by more onerous overseas Regulation which become all consuming for compliance teams.  We have already seen considerable activity to meet the challenges of Mifid ii.  Further new challenges have been brought in by the introduction of GDPR by the EU and the new corporate offences of tax evasion introduced by the UK Criminal Finances Act 2017 and the new Unexplained Wealth Orders.

Never has the need been greater for organisations to develop a culture of compliance and transparency.  This is not simple to achieve in a world given the significant different approaches to Regulation and Enforcement taken by Regulators worldwide.  This challenge is exacerbated for organisations operating in many countries with different language, cultural and moral norms.  The need for harmonisation of regulation is great.  There are continued concerns that Regulatory hurdles are holding back development and progress in the industry, and that the cost of regulatory compliance is putting considerable strain on the profitability of certain business lines.

The agenda is designed to include presentations, panel discussions, case studies and workshops – to look at where the compliance industry is today, the opportunities and challenges it faces, and where it needs to go to move to the next level.

We hope you will join this must-attend compliance fixture for those individuals and organisations serious about developing their compliance wealth management offerings.
