4 1 Investment Management: Rising to the Risk and Compliance Challenge New Regulatory Frontiers: Forging Ahead in a Changing Landscape While unprecedented regulatory reform is reshaping the way many industries conduct business, the financial services sector has, by far, felt the greatest impact of new and increasingly complex regulation. New rules and regulations, not the least of which is the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd- Frank Act), are having wide-ranging implications across the financial services spectrum and changing the regulatory framework, operations, and supervision of the industry. Forging ahead in this new regulatory environment can be especially challenging for investment managers and fund sponsors, who will need to make fundamental changes to their business models and operating structures while struggling to manage the rising costs of reform and its impact on growth. Such changes will bring about the need to redesign and implement governance and risk management frameworks that support the still-evolving regulatory landscape, as well as the business complexities of a dynamic and global marketplace. At KPMG LLP (KPMG), we can help you strategically address regulatory change. Our Regulatory Risk and Compliance practice professionals provide you with actionable and relevant advice while also offering valuable insight into how your progress measures against your industry peers. Our experienced professionals, who include former regulators, supervisors, examiners, and compliance practitioners, keep the pulse of both new and existing regulatory requirements and how they may impact your business today and in the future. Moreover, our broad range of service offerings can help you strengthen enterprise-wide compliance programs, implement effective governance and risk management frameworks, enhance internal controls, prepare for more intense regulatory scrutiny, and help create a culture of risk management and compliance within your organization.
